LEARN VISUAL BASIC 6 (Table of Contents)
self-paced comprehensive overview of the Visual Basic (Version 6) programming language and
environment. The tutorial written in 1998 covers the toolbox in detail, building and
distributing applications (using the Package & Deployment Wizard), error
handling, file access, graphics, database access and management (using the
legacy DAO Data Control and the new ADO Data Control with Data
Environment), the Windows API, multimedia, and advanced topics such as web
access, e-mail, printing and help system authoring. The curriculum is
identical to that used for over three years in a major university's
introductory Visual Basic course. NOTE:
This Tutorial has been replaced by
LEARN VISUAL BASIC
The focus of LEARN
VISUAL BASIC 6 is to use the existing controls and capabilities of
Visual Basic 6 to build a wide variety of useful desktop
applications. Some of the applications built include:
Stopwatch, Calendar Display, Loan Repayment Calculator, Flash Card Math
Game, Database Input Screen, Statistics Calculator, Tic-Tac-Toe Game,
Capital City Quiz, Information Tracker (with plotting), Blackjack, Line,
Bar and Pie charts, a version of the first video game ever - Pong, and a
Telephone Directory (Project Screen Shots).
LEARN VISUAL BASIC 6 is presented using a combination of over 550 pages of
notes and over 100 Visual Basic examples and applications. To grasp the
concepts presented in LEARN VISUAL BASIC 6, you should possess a working
knowledge of Windows and have had some exposure to programming concepts.
We offer two beginning programming
tutorials (VISUAL BASIC FOR KIDS and
BEGINNING VISUAL BASIC)
that would help you gain this needed exposure.
