Courses - Microsoft Visual Basic 107
Description: Using Microsoft Visual Basic
Running Time: 65 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Visual Basic 106 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 VB106. We'll spend a good deal of this class learning about the Common Controls Components. First we'll learn how to install them.


Next we'll learn about the status bar control which allows us to place a statusbar at the bottom of our forms.


Next we'll learn about the Progress Bar and AVI Animation controls, both of which can be used to show the user something to look at when your program is "processing stuff."

In our example, the progress bar (purple) will slide across
and fill up as a process is running. The two folders will show
an animated piece of paper flying between them.


Next we'll learn about the UpDown control. Unlike a scrollbar control, this control can be bound to a textbox so you don't even need any code to change the value.


Next we'll learn about the Slider control which you can use by clicking and dragging to change values.


The next controls we'll learn have to deal with changing dates. First we'll learn about the DateTime Picker. This control lets you select a date or time value by displaying a neat little calendar.


The MonthView control is similar, but it's always open on your screen, plus it allows you to select a range of dates. I'll show you how to use it, and return a start and end date.


Next we'll learn about the TapStrip control and why you should never use it. It's junk. It doesn't work. Instead, I'll teach you about the Microsoft Tabbed Dialog Control. This control is great, and it really gives you excellent tabs to work with.


Next we're going to build our very own Word Processor using the Rich Text Control. We'll see how the Rich Text Control works. We'll make our own buttons to Save and Load our document.


We'll make our own buttons to Bold, Underline, and Indent our text. We'll also learn how to change the font and color of our text - all with VB code.
