The essential companion for Visual Basic development teams and individuals.

All effective teamwork is based on clear communication. In the field of software development, this means using consistent, documented conventions that can be easily understood and built upon by teammates, now and in the future.

To meet this need, this handbook for Visual Basic programmers contains a comprehensive reference section covering nomenclature, instantiation, keywords, controls, user interfaces-every major VB concept, in all flavors of VB. And more than that, it promotes an attitude, an environment of the mind in which healthy Visual Basic programs are formed.

The winning philosophy of The Visual Basic Style Guide will help your team develop its programming power through discipline, documentation, and professionalism. Build your development skills through:

  • Application of proven and consistent style and user interface methodologies,
