Sams Teach Yourself Visual Basic 6 in 24 Hours

Free Visual Basic 6 book from Sams free library. The niche of this book is that it not only focuses on the topic at hand but it also provides a battery of tools/skills that will take the user at a higher level and help him/her realize the skills without waiting to read another book on some other topic.


This book is for programmers and would-be programmers who want to learn Visual Basic as quickly as possible without sacrificing the foundation necessary to master the language. Visual Basic is a product that can be used at many levels. Newcomers who have never programmed can create a complete working Windows program in less than two hours, as this book demonstrates. Those who have programmed in other languages will appreciate Visual Basic’s design, which makes creating a Windows program more like designing a screen with a mouse-driven art program.

This book teaches Visual Basic on several levels. You will quickly begin creating applications by following simple examples. These applications will be fully working Windows applications with all the usual user-interface controls, such as command buttons, labels, and text boxes.
