Courses - Microsoft Visual Basic 102
Description: Using Microsoft Visual Basic
Running Time: 67 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Visual Basic 101 strongly recommended
Versions: We use Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0, but lessons are valid for most earlier versions of VB, including 4 and 5. If you have VB.NET or VB 2005, the Visual Basic code we use is similar, but the programming interface has changed. These VB courses do NOT cover VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) which is what you need for Microsoft Office programming. For VBA, see the individual Office applications (Word, Excel, Access, etc.) Click here for more information on VB.NET courses.

Notice: this course covers the older Visual Basic 6.0 programming application. Microsoft no longer sells VB6. If you want to learn VB6, you'll have to find a used copy somewhere like eBay or Craigslist. We will be updating this course for use with Visual Basic 2013 soon. If you've purchased this course within the last year, you'll get a free upgrade when it's released.

This course picks up where VB101 left off. We will expand upon many of the topics and techniques we learned about in that class. First, we will begin by learning more about the IF / THEN statement, to include ELSEIF and ELSE clauses.


Next, we will learn how to prompt the user to enter in data, by using the InputBox function.


We will also learn how to let the user select an option from a list of available data, by means of the Combo Box control.


We will build a couple of simple math quiz programs to sharpen our math skills. The first will be a simple program to have the computer give us two numbers, and we have to add them up and give the right answer. The second program will help us to sharpen our multiplication skills.


These programs will teach us how to use and declare variables, how to generate random numbers, and how to generate sequential numbers using a FOR / NEXT loop. We will also learn how to properly document our code with comments.


In our next lesson, we'll have some fun by creating an Image Viewer using the Image control. A user will be able to specify a filename, click on a Load button, and watch their image loaded into your VB program.


After that, we will build a simple loan calculator, where you can enter in the amount of a loan (such as a home mortgage), the number of months, and the interest rate, and your program will calculate the monthly payment amount. This lesson will teach us how to use the PMT function. We'll also learn about the line continuation character.


This course is a good course to follow VB101 with. We cover many fundamental aspects of the VB language, and we will continue to build on these skills in VB103.
