Visual Basic 6 (VB6) - Beginners Tutorial

(Click Here for Contents)

Welcome to Free Visual Basic 6 (VB6) tutorial for beginners. This Visual Basic 6 (VB6) tutorial helps you to learn Visual Basic 6.0 (VB6) programming in your own. Assuming you all are beginners to visual basic, each and every lesson in this tutorial is explained step by step with examples and source code.

Visual basic is a high level programming language developed from the earlier DOS version called BASIC. Though, Visual Basic .NET is the latest technology introduced by Microsoft with tons of new features including the .NET framework and educational institues, Universities and Software Development companies have migrated to VB .NET, Visual Basic 6 is still widely learned and taught.

Learning Visual Basic 6 is quite easier than other programming languages such as C++, C#, Java etc. This is because Visual Basic enables you to work in a graphical user interface where you can just drag and drop controls that you want to work with where you have to write bunches of code to create in C++ or C# or even in Java. If you are new to programming and want to start it in the smoothest and easiest way, then you should start it with Visual Basic.

This Visual Basic 6 tutorial is for anyone who wants to learn to program his or her computer with Visual Basic. More importantly, this tutorial is for anyone who’s flipped through other programming resources only to be discouraged by obtuse language, jargon-ridden prose, and stuffed-shirt attitudes. The Visual Basic 6 (VB6) beginner's conversational style incorporates plain-English explanations along with short programming examples to lead the novice programmer by the hand through the techno jungle of computer programming.
