I'm using an usercontrol and remaind confused about the difference between Private or Public Declare... and Private / Public DLLImports Shared....

Any one can enlighten me?
Thanks in advance

The difference between Private just means you do not want code outside of your class to have access to the function.

There is no functional difference between Declare and DllImport. They both do the same thing, just in slightly different syntactic ways.
