Visual Basic

What it is, and how the program works.

What is Visual Basic?

Visual Basic is a deviation of Microsoft's BASIC language. It was made for programmers who are new to programming applications. Visual Basic can create .exe files, .dll files; this you can determine inside the application. Programming in VB is a combination of visually arranging compo or controls on a form, specifying attributes and actions of those components, and writing additional lines of code for more functionality. Since default attributes and actions are defined for the components, a simple program can be created without the programmer having to write many lines of code.


A form box can be used in Visual Basic. It is used by dragging and dropping icons, or code into the window. I am still unsure about how these work, but I guess it is something to do with HUD's, or GUI's.
