Learn Visual Basic 6.0 is a self-paced course. The suggested approach is to do one class a week for ten weeks. Each week’s class should require about 4 to 8 hours of your time to grasp the concepts completely. Prior to doing a particular week’s work, open the class notes file for that week and print it out. Then, work through the notes at your own pace. Try to do each example as they are encountered in the notes. If you need any help, all solved examples are included in the VB Code folder.
With every release of Visual Basic, Microsoft has added new functionality to enhance the applications that can be created. Visual Basic 6 took the first real step toward a client/server development tool that could create robust Windows applications. This newest release of Visual Basic, titled Visual Basic .NET, makes the jump from a mostly Windows-based application system to a truly dynamic development environment that allows you to design both Windows and Web-centric applications.

Learn Visual Basic 6.0
Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 is an important upgrade and enhancement of the popular Visual
Basic programming language and compiler, a technology that enjoys an installed base of
millions of programmers worldwide. Visual Basic 2010 is not a stand-alone product but
a key component of Microsoft Visual Studio 2010—a comprehensive development system
that allows you to create powerful applications for Windows, the Web, handheld devices,
and a host of other environments.
Visual Basic 2005, together with the .NET Framework, provides a wonderfully powerful development
environment. With these tools, developers can build amazingly powerful applications relatively quickly
With this power, however, comes great complexity. Many books are available that discuss the Visual
Basic language, and if you need to build a relatively simple application, those are generally sufficient.
No books, however, address the complex issues that surround the development of more complicated
Visual Basic applications.
Frustration! It's one word that I've used to describe many of my development experiences.
Anyone who's worked with Visual Studio fully knows about the two-language dilemma that it
poses. At the one end of the development experience, Visual Basic makes development
relatively easy and fast, but it lacks the low-end connectivity I often need without performing
a lot of additional programming.
Learn Visual Basic 6.0 is a 10 week, self-paced overview of the Visual Basic programming language and environment. Upon completion of the course, you will: 1. Understand the benefits of using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 as an application development tool. 2. Understand the Visual Basic event-driven programming concepts, terminology, and available tools. 3. Learn the fundamentals of designing, implementing, and distributing a wide variety of Visual Basic applications. Learn Visual Basic 6.
Teach yourself Visual C# 2010-one step at a time. Ideal for developers with fundamental programming skills, this practical tutorial features learn-by-doing exercises that demonstrate how, when, and why to use the features of the C# rapid application development environment. You'll learn how to use Microsoft Visual Studio® 2010 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0; develop a solid, fundamental understanding of C# language features; and then get to work creating actual components and working applications for the Windows® operating system.
If you are interested in writing programs for the new
Microsoft C# programming language, then C#: Your
visual blueprint for building .NET applications is the
book for you.
This book will take you through the basics of using
the Visual Studio Microsoft Development Environment
(MDE) window and familiarize you with the essentials
of C# programming. The book even covers advanced
topics including creating forms, macros, and Web
Visual Basic Script Language (VBScript) is one of Microsoft’s scripting languages that is commonly associated with Server-side and Client-side web applications. However, Microsoft has opened up VBScript to developers and now VBScript can be found in a variety of applications. InduSoft has standardized on VBScript since it provides a significant subset of Microsoft Visual Basic’s functionality, and VBScript supports all of Microsoft’s operating system platforms including Windows CE, unlike VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) which cannot support the Windows CE runtime environment....
Welcome to the second edition of Microsoft WSH and VBScript Programming
for the Absolute Beginner. VBScript (Visual Basic Scripting language) is
a member of the Visual Basic family of programming languages. Other
members of this family of programming languages include Visual Basic and VBA.
Visual Basic is a very powerful and complex programming language used by programming
professionals all over the world.
PowerShell is a scripting language built into Windows Server 2008 R2 servers.
PowerShell is designed to help you perform routine and repetitive tasks in a scriptable
fashion. PowerShell helps alleviate many of the time-consuming and tedious
tasks administrators have had to do in the past. You may have used various scripting
technologies over the years to accomplish these tasks; however, in PowerShell
2.0, you have a better tool than you have ever had when working with Microsoft
environments. PowerShell 2.0 was launched with the release of Windows 7 and
Windows Server 2008 R2.
The .NET framework was designed to be the “lingua franca” for Windows development, with the
expectation that it will set a new standard for building integrated software for Windows. However, it is
inevitable that there is a time lag before .NET is fully adopted and existing applications are recoded. In
particular, there is a large body of legacy code that will likely never be rewritten in .NET. To address this
situation, Microsoft provides attributes, assembly, and marshaling.
Java Programming, Fifth Edition provides the beginning programmer with a guide to developing applications
using the Java programming language. Java is popular among professional programmers because it
can be used to build visually interesting graphical user interface (GUI) and Web-based applications. Java
also provides an excellent environment for the beginning programmer—a student quickly can build useful
programs while learning the basics of structured and object-oriented programming techniques.
This textbook assumes that you have little or no programming experience.
VISUAL BASIC is a VISUAL and events driven Programming Language. These are the
main divergences from th1e old BASIC. In BASIC, programming is done in a text-based
environment and the program is executed sequentially. In VISUAL BASIC,
programming is done in a graphical environment. In old BASIC, you have to write a
text-based procedure to design the interface, but Visual Basic enables you to design
the interface by dragging and resizing the objects as well as changing their colors, just
like any windows-based programs.
