Visual Basic is a visual programming environment developed by Microsoft for Windows. Since its introduction in 1998, it has been popular with both professional programmers and programming enthusiasts thanks to its ease of use and practicality, and still has enduring popularity today. At the same time, as the third-generation event-driven programming language, Visual Basic can be said to be the programming language with the largest number of users in the world.

Visual Basic is derived from the classic BASIC programming language, has a graphical user interface (GUI) and rapid application development (RAD) system, and can easily use DAO, RDO, ADO to connect to a database, or create ActiveX controls. Programmers are able to quickly and easily build a complete application using the ready-made components provided by Visual Basic. Its powerful functions can be competent for enterprise-level program development, which mainly manifests in: WYSIWYG interface design, object-based design method, extremely short software development cycle, and generated code that is easy to maintain.

Visual Basic 6 Bible provides everything you need to know about Active Data Objects, IIS and ActiveX programming, as well as using the Windows API; it’s backed with expert advice, tons of code examples, and intermediate to advanced tips and tricks; and will help you build robust, reliable solutions that meet all your programming challenges. The CD-ROM accompanying Visual Basic 6 Bible includes a wide array of popular components and demos, such as Advantageware, Apex, Modern Software, and Protoview. But unfortunately, AppNee didn’t get this CD-ROM file.

Visual Basic 6 Bible does go beyond the basic user’s manual. In addition to providing you with complete coverage of Visual Basic 6 knowledge, it also serves as the essential resource designed to help you understand how and when to use the various tools and techniques available in Visual Basic. Even better, it features relevant, real-world sample code and applications that you can incorporate into your own projects.

Since its release in 1998, Visual Basic 6 has made bigger and better improvements over its predecessors. Even to this day, it still has a strong vitality and popularity for many programmers around the world. Although its WYSIWYG approach to development is not uncommon these days, it is still a very good choice for beginners in programming, and can lead them to the door of programming smoothly.
