I had originally learned Visual Basic with Visual Basic 6.0 when I was in Grade 11. I wanted to go over my concepts before university, is there a big different between the concepts in Visual Basic Studio and Visual Basic 6.0?

Introduction Hello World

  • Designed for the Absolute Beginner
  • Can use any version of Visual Studio
  • Important to do the Homework
  • Take notes, they help with memorization
  • Don't take both courses at once
  • BASIC is "Beginner's all-purpose symbolic instruction code"
  • Visual Basic introduced in 1991
  • Visual Basic.Net introduced in 2001, including OOP
  • Rapid Application Development (RAD) language
  • Imperative programs execute line-by-line
  • Event-driven programs execute as user creates "events"
  • Since VB is converted to a Common Intermediate Language to run, it can be converted to other .Net languages
  • Console.Write() and Console.WriteLine() are used to output text to the console window
  • Console.Beep() beeps the speaker
  • Console.Clear() clears the console screen
  • You can collapse sections of code to make navigating your program easier
  • Green bar on the left-hand side of your code indicates successfully-saved code
  • Yellow bar on the left-hand side of your code indicates unsaved code
  • "Pinning" your panels open keeps them open
  • "Unpinning" your panels allows them to auto-collapse and gives you more space on your screen
  • Using Intellisense makes coding faster and less error-prone
  • When writing text to the console window, be mindful of extra spaces!
