Courses - Microsoft Visual Basic 105
Description: Using Microsoft Visual Basic
Running Time: 74 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Visual Basic 104 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 follows VB104. We'll begin by learning Option Buttons and Control Arrays. I'll show you first how to make the option buttons without an array, and then with one. And, of course, we'll learn how to read the value of the option buttons in code.

Next we'll learn about creating List Boxes. We'll see how to read the values from a ListBox, display all the items, learn about the ListCount and ListIndex properties, and the AddItem, RemoveItem, and Clear methods. We'll see how to create a sorted ListBox.

We'll make two list boxes and a button to move one
item from the left box to the right one

We'll then take List Boxes further with the Multi-Select List Box. This will allow you to highlight multiple items and do "stuff" with them. Of course, we'll learn how to work with this data in our VB code. We'll learn about the Selected, ItemData and NewIndex properties. We'll also learn about the ID tags that can be stored with items.

Same example, but moving multiple items at once


Next we'll learn about Combo Boxes, Drop-Down Boxes, Drop-Down Lists, and how to manipulate them with code.

A Standard Combo Box

You'll learn how to add an item to the Combo Box if
it's not already in there

Next we'll learn about Scroll Bars - no, not those things on the side and bottom of your window that let you move up and down on the screen (well, you could use these for that - but we have different plans). These scroll bars allow you to change values in your forms. You'll learn about the Min, Max, Value, SmallChange, and LargeChange properties, and the Change and Scroll events.

A simple Scroll Bar "spinner button"

In this lesson, we'll learn more about the Timer control - how to use it to time longer intervals. We'll also learn about the Format Function and how to run an event at a specific time of the day.

This doesn't look like much, but we can program the Timer
Control to run an event at a specific time of day - in this
example, just to close the form.
