Why Don't I Get Those Keywords? 

Why Don't I Get Those Keywords? is a good article by Kate Gregory on Code Guru about how to define Properties and Delegates in Managed C++ despite the lack of those facilities in the base language. This is another article in her running series on Code Guru called Using VC++ .NET.

I personally haven't touched C++ in some time, deciding to make the full switch in heart and mind to C#... but in this series of articles she makes a very good argument for using Managed C++ for writing .NET interop libraries. Having had my share of headaches trying to make C# deal with unmanaged types... and dealing with Marshalling... maybe she has a point. But I guess I like the advantages that C# offers more then writing Managed C++ would help me with Interop code.

In short... get real used to the double underscore in Managed C++. You'll be using it a lot.
