Visual Basic 5 Fundamentals Unleashed is a straightforward tutorial designed for ambitious beginners who want to get a solid grounding in Visual Basic (VB) programming. Rather than dive right into the language, the initial chapters concentrate on VB 5's integrated development environment (IDE), which has become significantly more complex and more powerful in the 5.0 release. The book's substantial middle section covers event-driven programming and the core language features. In this section, you'll learn about event handers, data types, functions, variables, data structures, arrays, program flow control, file I/O, and making calls to the Windows API. The final third is devoted to VB controls, those incredibly useful pre-packaged program elements that will become the framework of most of your programs.
Visual Basic 5 Fundamentals Unleashed was written by a team of authors, and the tone varies somewhat from section to section. The general technical level is also high for a beginning tutorial and you'll probably feel more comfortable if you've had a little previous experience in Basic or another language. But if you're ready to tackle a fast-paced training course, this book delivers the foundations you need.
Provides an introductory reference for Visual basic programmers. The text concentrates on essential topics to beginning developers including Application Wizard, file I/O, standard controls, error handling and program flow. The CD contains source code from the book.
