Why the big change between Visual Basic and VB .NET? The reason is Visual Basic itself, Which is now become Visual Basic .NET (also called VB .NET). The difference between Visual Basic .NET and the previous version, Visual Basic 6.0, is revolutionary and far reaching. Visual Basic .NET has more than five years in the making, and it represent entirely new directions for Visual Basic. Besides the biggest change – integrated support for web development – the very syntax of Visual Basic has under gone tremendous changes.
A great number of techniques that you’ve probably learned carefully are now completely different, such as data handling, and many controls, project types, and other aspects of Visual Basic 6.0 are no longer available at all. All of which means that there’s a terrific amount of material we need to cover – so we will try to pack as much Visual Basic .NET in this web.
Visual Basic has a long and, so far, glorious history. When it first appeared, it created a revolution in windows programming. Visual Basic introduced unheard- of ease to Windows programming – just build the program you want, right before your eyes, and then run it. In so doing, it changed programming from a chore to something very like fun.
In time, Visual Basic has gotten more complex, as well as more powerful. Today, it’s more complex than ever, and if you’ve used Visual Basic 6.0, you may be surprised at all the new addition. Here you’ll see how to use Visual Basic in task oriented way, Which is the best way to write about programming. Instead of superimposing some abstract structure, we will organize it the way programmer want it – task by task.
