(New Whidbey Feature). You have a task in mind, but don’t know how to do it. How Do I allows you to browse through topics to find the one related to your current task.
Let’s say I’m new to the Visual Basic .NET language and I need to learn how to declare an array. I start off by clicking Help – How Do I. (or if you are in the Document Explorer, just click the How Do I button on the toolbar – another new Whidbey feature).
Since I’m using the General Development Profile, the How Do I for General Development page comes up. From here I click the How Do I in Visual Basic link. On the next page, I find as the first link Learn the Visual Basic Language. Obviously, I want to learn something about the Visual Basic language, so I click here.
I notice this page contains a collection of different programming tasks. I do a search (Ctrl+F3) for “Array”. And I find How to: Create an Array of Objects topic. Sweet.
