Now, In this post we are making you familiar with some basic technical definations of VB.
Few technical terms that will be used in the development of Visual Basic Project very
Controls Reusable objects that provide the pieces of the visual interface of a
program. Examples of controls are a text box, a label, or a command button.
Event An action initiated by the user, the operating system, or the program itself.
Examples of events are a keystroke, a mouse click, the expiration of a specified
amount of time, or the receipt of data from a port.
Methods Predefined actions that can be performed by an object. For example, a
form has a Hide method that makes it invisible to the user.
Object A basic element of a program, which contains properties to define its
characteristics, contains methods to define its tasks, and recognizes events to which
it can respond. Controls and forms are examples of the objects used in Visual Basic.
Procedures Segments of code that you write to accomplish a task. Procedures are
often written to respond to a specific event. Types of procedures include Sub
procedures, which consist of a sequence of statements; and Functions, which return a value.
Properties The characteristics of an object, such as its size, position, color, or text font.
Properties determine the appearance and sometimes the behavior of an object. Properties are also
used to provide data to an object and to retrieve information from the object.
