i've been on many endeavors that have tried this. It's enormously difficult (or impossible) at times due to needing an entirely new type of technology to solve modern customer needs
What I am saying is the tech is already here. Web controls can be implemented with blazor components, and the 2-tier model (Form design and code behind) can be implemented with Razor pages. So, web Forms can be re-implemented with these mew technology so existing web forms apps cab be easily upgraded to ASP.NET core. This will hide Razor and HTML from the user, so, it will be suitable for VB apps and no need to use Vazor. This project of course can be done by any company (not MS) and I have no problem if anyone here does it as a commercial product. This idea is for free :)
Web forms and Silver Light were the most brilliant MS innovations in the web. Wasm can revive and modernize them.
As of July 8th, a MAUI team member wrote:
There are no plans currently to support templates in .NET MAUI, however I'm not aware of any reason that you couldn't use VB to write a .NET MAUI application. If someone wants to create and maintain some community templates that use VB for .NET MAUI we can see if it makes sense eventually to include them with the C# ones.
In this episode of *VB Supported"... check out https://github.com/JoeMayo/LinqToTwitter
I haven't tried it myself, but there are samples in VB. 👍
No, I just bump into them everywhere along the vb timeline!
