Visual Basic Basics

Many of the things that you can do with Visual Basic really aren’t very basic at all. The Visual Basic language is quite powerful — if you can imagine a programming task, it can probably be accomplished using Visual Basic. As you might guess, there’s a lot to be learned before you can consider yourself a guru; but once you understand the basics of Visual Basic you’ll find that you are productive in no time at all.

The first five chapters of the Visual Basic Programmer’s Guide cover the basics, providing the foundation that you will need for anything you want to do in Visual Basic.
