While reading What should be the close reason for "convert / translate my code" questions? I was curious towards my old question about a VB.NET WinForms to C# WPF conversion project.

VB.NET features late binding allowing you to call .Name on a TreeView.Nodes(int). As C# doesn't feature late binding, TreeView.Items[int] returns an object. Perplexed on what to do, I asked here on StackOverflow.

Is my question valid or should it have been closed?

I don't see why you even ask yourself whether it should have been closed. It's definitely not a typical "Translate my code" type question. Those look like this:

Hi, I need to translate this code into x language.

(wall of code)

It wasn't closed. I'm asking if it should have. – Cole Johnson Apr 8 '13 at 17:51
@Cole nope, it shouldn't have. It looks like a totally legit question to me. You're not asking for anyone to do your job, you're showing own effort and research, etc. – Pëkka Apr 8 '13 at 17:52
It's not a bad question. – Brian Apr 8 '13 at 17:52
