More on Creating Data Input Forms and Dialog Boxes in Visual Basic 6

This section examines the use of VB Form objects within a project. Topics covered include:

When a project's design specifies multiple forms, it is the programmer's job to ensure a clean, easy-to-use interface. The knowledge of how forms are loaded into memory, the effect when forms leave memory, when to expect a form to be displayed, and when it is removed are critical elements in designing a professional-looking and behaving application.

Also knowing how information is stored at design time will help to ensure forms that can be used throughout various projects or moved from one version of VB to another.

Forms are used to contain other controls for user interaction. When one object has the capability to host other controls, this object is known as a Container. When controls are placed on a form, they are affected when the form is moved or resized. This allows the form to act as a Container object. The Picture control is also a Container and can have other controls placed on it.

This section looks at how to load and unload forms from memory, how to show and hide forms from the screen, and how design time forms are stored.
