DirectCast vs. CType[^]

Share this answer
The DirectCast is used to casting objects from one datatype to another. You use it the same way you use the CType keyword.

The difference between the two keywords is that CType succeeds as long as there is a valid conversion defined between the expression and the type, whereas DirectCast requires the run-time type of an object variable to be the same as the specified type.

however, the run-time performance of DirectCast is better than that of CType.
