Visual Basic was released in 1987 by Microsoft. It was the first visual development tool from Microsoft, and it was meant to compete with C, C++, Pascal and other well-known programming languages. From the start, Visual Basic wasn't a hit. Until 1991 when people really discovered the potential of the language. Visual Basic 2.0 was released and with release 3.0 it had become the fastest-growing programming language on the market.
Visual Basic provides many interesting sets of tools to aid you in building exciting applications. Visual Basic provides these tools to make your life far easier because all the real hard code is already written for you. In comparison with other languages such as “C” or “Pascal, Visual Basic creates application in minutes.
You can use certain parts of windows to create application. First create the control on the screen, and then write the code which would be executed once the control button is pressed.
Visual basic has earned the status of a professional programming language or the reputation of a children's language. Also, Visual Basic is recognized as a Graphics User Interface (GUI). It is because as you draw, you write the program. Overall, VB is the preferred language of many future programmers. If you want to start programming Windows, and don't know how to start, give Visual Basic a shot.
Visual Basic has significant language features. Also, it is a complete graphical development environment. This is because allows users with little programming experience to develop Microsoft Windows applications quickly. Applications which have the ability to use object Linking and Embedding, such as an Excel spreadsheet are created easily with VB. By using Visual Basic you will be able to develop programs that can be used as a front end application to a database system, serving as the user interface which collects user input and displays formatted output in a more appealing and useful form.
Visual Basic allows the user to create nice looking, graphical programs with little coding by the programmer, unlike many other languages that may take hundreds of lines of programmer keyed code. We have to understand the major concepts why the program codes are automatically generated by Visual Basic to allow the programmer work in the graphical environment. The main object in Visual Basic is called a form. You always will start with a clear form when you open a new project.
All the program codes are automatically generated by the Visual Basic program in order to understand the major concepts, objects and tools used by Visual Basic.
The main object in Visual Basic is called a form.
Controls are things like text boxes, check boxes and command buttons. You choose them from the Visual Basic "tool box” to add them to your form with the mouse and inserting them in the form. Once forms/controls are created, you can change the properties appearance, structure etc. related to those objects in that particular objects properties window
Finally, you can add events to your controls. Events are responses to actions performed on controls.
Select the object to create an event for and the clicking action from the drop down menus in the code box. Open a code box to use in a particular form by selecting it from the project window and clicking the View Code button. The project window contains a list of objects associated with that project.
Once all your objects are created, you can combine them to form a single executable program that can be run outside of the Visual Basic environment, in Microsoft Windows.
