Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Professional Edition (VB6) is one of programming languages which is very friendly, even to a beginner. It does not mean that VB6 is not a powerful tool, but it delivers a lot of friendly features for a programmer in doing his jobs. I have been learning and using VB6 for more than 6 months and I see VB6 is very convenient for me to build projects (In this case I do not learn it formally, I just learn it by myself). Hence, I think I should recommend VB6 to readers who are interested in. Supposing I stop here, you must say that this opinion is unhelpful at all. Well, I need to expose some general reasons for me to give the recommendation in the following sections; I try to describe it in not a ?too technical? way. WHY IS IT EASY TO LEARN? VB6 comes with a set of components, such as text, label, combo-box, grid, button, etc. The components can be attached on a form just by clicking and dragging; then we have to write some lines of commands to activate the component on the form. A programmer can test a project without compiling the source-code into an executable file which wastes a lot of time. Supposing there is a runtime error, the programmer can debug the error and find out the line of the error code. One more outstanding feature of VB6 is that the source-code editor gives clues of commands and certainly this feature helps much because a programmer does not have to remember a lot of commands or type the commands required in a programming process. VB6 is not a new programming language, and it is a popular language, so that it is easy for us to find good books to learn and many other online resources through internet. Nowadays there are many sites or resources for VB6 communities, such as www.vbcity.com, www.vbip.com, etc. SUPPORTS Microsoft supports VB6 users with Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN). Registered users also can g
et some updates on their official site. MSDN for VB6 is packed in compact-disks. It is easy to install. There are some helpful examples of VB6 included in the CDs. While writing some codes, the user can get helps on certain commands required. The programmer can see a lot of examples, and certainly get some better understanding of the commands. Instead of the official site, we can also find a lot of helpful forums on internet. There are a lot of samples or tools needed in VB6 programming provided. COMPATIBILITY I see that VB6 is compatible with most Windows Operating Systems (Windows 95 to Windows XP). All projects created using VB6 can also run on the OS. Some third party products are also compatible for VB6. For example, in creating a report on screen (for screen preview), we can use Crystal Report. There are many other products supporting VB6. WHAT VB6 CAN DO You may say that you are not a programmer, and you do not need to learn it. Well, as I have said before, it delivers ease to its users; the language supports for database programming and also for entertainment (games). You can build your simple project for your home-financing application and make some small games for your children. I am sure if you have been involved in this friendly programming language, it is hard to stop you! Or you are interested in homepage, you can use VB6 to do it. You can create an interactive homepage. My last word: Use a simple and universal language to give an order. VB6 is the answer and my choice!
The latest version of Microsoft's popular language, Visual Basic. A quote springs to mind here, something along the lines of standing on the shoulders of giants... version 6 inherits something amazing, yet squanders it wholesale, I'm afraid. Visual Basic has always been one of the easiest of object orientated languages to use, being simple for beginners and advanced for, well, erm, advancers :) - ie experts :) A pity then that version 6 seems to bring little extra, in fact it actually seems more of a disappointment than much of an improvement :O It annoyed me, to be honest. The worst of my niggles is the way V B is now far, far more stricter with its syntax, asking for brackets here, no brackets there, where once it would be happy with either. More awkward than it used to be, stick to v5 :)
