Visual Basic is the most widely used programming language for creating Windows applications. It is easy to learn and does not require you to memorize difficult commands like other programming languages. In this course, you will learn how to write Windows applications and programs using the Visual Basic programming language and the Visual Basic development environment. You will see how Visual Basic development environment enables you to create the application program and its components literally with the click of a button or menu item. It even writes all the necessary code to get the application started for you.
In this course you will learn the building blocks of programming, including using variables to store data, control structures, and loops. You will discover how to use the large function library built into Visual Basic as well as how to write and use your own functions. You will also explore using Windows' large and varied library of controls and how to access files and handle errors. You will learn about event-driven and object-oriented programming---concepts that are important not just in Visual Basic, but in other programming languages as well.
