Is there something I just don't know about VS or has anyone else run across this problem?

C# is a language that is case Senstive, while VB is not. In C# you can have a property name foo and a getter Setter name Foo and there is no problem. In VB8 however, this is illegal.

Usually private variable might be named _foo and the getter/setter is is Foo(or foo).

Am I daft? What am I missing? I have been through the .chm example and now the online version as well and they both show vb code that will not compile due to the reason I am talking about.

Here is an excerpt from the help file this WILL NOT COMPILE under VB unless panelElement is named something like _panelElement . Is Telerik missing this point or am I ingorant of something?

        Private panelElement As MyPanelElement 
 
        Public Sub New() 
            Me.UseNewLayoutSystem = True 
            Me.AutoSize = True 
        End Sub 
        Public ReadOnly Property PanelElement() As MyPanelElement 
            Get 
                Return Me.panelElement 
            End Get 
        End Property
