look at the object oriented material
VB is widely considered one of the easier ways to build a GUI. Its latest incarnation is described here. The authors show you how Microsoft has tweaked it into the .NET framework. The teaching pace is deliberately measured. For example, in a chapter on making menus, the steps are set up in considerable detail, with many screen captures. The authors take little for granted in your programming background. The size of the book partially reflects the many diagrams offered. Since these can be very useful and reassuring to a new programmer, it is a good thing that the authors are so liberal in furnishing them. But the size is also a measure of how far VB has come from its Basic roots. VB now has strong object oriented capabilities, and several chapters use this. More for you to learn, of course. But in the long run, it might help your coding habits.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
