Written for university and community college students who are interested in learning Windows-based, business-oriented computer programming, Visual Basic 6.0 assumes no previous knowledge of computer programming. The authors strive to develop sound, fundamental skills in graphical interface design and in structured computer programming as well as to cover all of the fundamentals well, while leaving more advanced topics to other textbooks and trade publications.Following a structured outline, each chapter begins with learning objectives and key terms. The body of each chapter mimics the seven step programming process.During the first step, "Understanding the Problem, " the student is guided in running that chapter's application and noticing its new features. In the second step, "Design a Solution, " the new features necessary for the chapter's application are discussed in detail. The third step, "Develop an Algorithm, " is devoted to program logic. Beginning with Chapter Three, this includes the table of contents as well as pseudocode for individual procedures. Step 4, "Design the GUI, " contains all of the property settings needed for the graphical interface. Step 5 presents the complete coding for the program and any needed explanations. Step 6, as appropriate, discusses testing and debugging of the program. Finally, Step 7 describes documentation that must be completed.Robert J. Spear is the author of 'Programming In Visual Basic 6.0' with ISBN 9780030263910 and ISBN 0030263913.
