Hello,

I just try to use SharpDX with VB.NET but I realized that it was impossible to use the 'SharpDX.Direct3D11.Effect.GetVariableByName("").AsMatrix.SetMatrix' function
due to the fact that VB.NET is not case sensitive,
SetMatrix has different name:

My post is just for information for people seeking information on the duo SharpDX + VB.NET

Unfortunately, SharpDX has been designed primarily to be used from C# where you can fully leverage OO programming (like overloading methods using by ref parameters) and use unsafe code whenever critical code requires it. It is unfortunate that VB.NET doesn't support these. Going through all the methods/interfaces would be quite a job and would break lots of interfaces, but it is still doable.
