The example code in the book is in C#, but the VB code is available online. I have only one real complaint so far. Not all of the example code is available as VB .net code. I discovered this in Chapter 10 when I was trying out the Geospatial Data Renderer. The code is only available as C#, but with some help from the internet and using what I had learned already by following previous examples, I was able to get the VB code working.
My only complaint is that I can not find the VB.net example code on the Wrox web site. Consequently, I am learning C#; which is not a bad thing.
