VB .NET - no static methods?

Recommended Posts

Looks like VB .net doesn''t let you declare static methods as members of a class? Is there another way to do this other than putting the method in a module file? I thought vb .net was supposed to be fully OOP but if I can''t encapsulate everything into classes what does this mean? I must be missing something here. We are about to migrate our projects from Visual FoxPro into .NET and I am being forced to use VB .NET because the other developer doesn''t want to learn C#, which I already know. I hate office politics. Anyway, static methods in VB .NET?
