LEARN VISUAL BASIC 6
LEARN VISUAL BASIC 6 is a self-paced comprehensive overview of the Visual Basic (Version 6) programming language and environment. The ten week course 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. This curriculum is currently used in a major university's introductory Visual Basic course.
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.
LEARN VISUAL BASIC 6 is presented using a combination of over 550 pages of course notes and over 100 Visual Basic examples (40 new examples added with Version 2.0) 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. Included with the course is free, unlimited support and advice via e-mail.
