Chapter 3. Controls and Properties

Nobody can master Visual Basic until he masters controls and properties. The form is the placeholder for the controls, and the controls are the really important parts of any application. Many of the properties require different kinds of values, and you will learn in this hour's lesson how to set those values.

Before you finish this lesson, you also will have created your very first application from scratch without the aid of the VB Application Wizard. You will have created a new project, sized the form, added controls, set control properties, and even written an event procedure using the Visual Basic programming language. As you'll soon see, Visual Basic makes all those tasks simple.
