    Hello this is a question.
    I saw this line of code:

    Code:
    Label3.Text = Now.Date + Now.TimeOfDay
    
    I told the coder that is wrong, he should use & instead. He insisted it is correct. He finaly showed me a screenshot with his line on visual studio, with no error or anything. Since when vb.NET used + for concatenation? Is there any other explanation?

    VB is not very strict and works fine

    You can even do away without a variable being declared in vb6 as much as I know of
