In VB6, to show a message box, I used to use this code:

MsgBox ("Hello World!")

I see in VB 2005 there is another message box which can be called like this:

MessageBox.Show ("Hellow World")

Which one should I be using in VB 2005?

The 2nd one is the .Net version
There's still support for the first, but if you're trying to move towards .Net, use Messagebox...

I agree. There are many other backward compatible codes existing in VB 2005 just to ease the migration pain VB6 developers face while migrating their code from Vb6 to VB 2005. You should try to stick to .Net version of same functionality as that will be little faster.

Just FYI...I have seen posts where the use of the older MsgBox caused unforeseen side effects such as focus issues and/or not appearing "in front".
