history of visual basic
History of Visual Basic
  • Microsoft first released Visual Basic in 1987.
  • first visual development tool from Microsoft
    • to compete with C, C++, Pascal and other well-known programming languages.
  • Visual Basic wasn't a hit at first until release 2.0
    • slowly people discovered the potential of the language
  • with release 3.0
    • it had become the fastest-growing programming language on the market.
what is visual basic net
What Is Visual Basic.Net
  • Visual Basic. NET is an extension of Visual Basic
  • Visual Basic .Net is a true object oriented language therefore supports:
      • Polymorphism,
      • Inheritance,
      • Abstraction
      • Encapsulation.
  • Visual Basic .NET was designed to take advantage of
    • the .NET Framework base classes
    • and runtime environment.
versions of visual basic net
Versions of Visual Basic .NET
  • Visual Basic .NET 2002 (VB 7)
    • was released alongside Visual C# and ASP.NET in 2002.
  • Visual Basic .NET 2003 (VB 7.1)
    • was released with version 1.1 of the .NET Framework.
  • Visual Basic 2005 (VB 8.0)
    • the next iteration of Visual Basic .NET,
  • Visual Basic 2008 (VB 9.0)
    • will be released together with the Microsoft .NET Framework .3.5.
  • Visual Basic 'VBx' (VB 10.0)
    • also known as VBx, will offer support for the Dynamic Language Runtime.
  • Inheritance allows :
    • to build a hierarchy of related classes
    • and to reuse functionality defined in existing classes.
  • Implemented with the keyword “Inherits”
    • a class with the keyword "inherits”, is called a subclass
    • It automatically contains each and every member of its super class "virtually”
    • can have its own members too
inheritance contd
Inheritance (contd)
  • single inheritance
    • a class can derive from only one base type.
    • VB .NET supports only single inheritance
  • multi-level inheritance
    • more than two levels of inheritance (in the form of a chain of classes).
    • all the members of all super classes would automatically be available within the sub class.
what is a component
What is a Component?
  • Component is a compiled set of classes that support the services provided by the component.
    • the classes expose their services through the properties, methods, and events that comprise the component's interface
    • In-Process Components
      • built as DLLs
      • run within the process space of the host application
      • tend to run faster
    • Out-of-Process Components
      • have an EXE file name extension
      • run as independent processes outside of the client application
      • more stable than In-Process Components
      • sharable resources
component reuse
Component Reuse
  • Facilities for Component Reuse:
    • By simply adding a reference to a COM component
      • it is instanced and called as though it is a .NET component
      • saves a huge amount of re-development time
    • .Net provides a good framework for code libraries
      • components can be easily adapted /modified by the programmer
      • Components are particularly useful for developing GUI’s
  • Degree of Component Reuse:
    • A whole application can be put together using the components itself
class reuse
Class reuse
  • Visual Basic.Net is Object-Oriented thus involves objectsin some way or other
  • everything is based on the Object Class.
    • Controls, Forms, Modules, etc are all types of classes.
  • VB.Net comes with
    • thousands of built-in classes
    • which are ready to be used
  • kept in namespace called System
    • all other namespaces are based on this System namespace
    • namespaces can be included in the code with the keyword import followed by the namespace
class reuse contd
Class Reuse (contd)
  • Some Namespaces and their use:
  • System: Includes essential classes and base classes for commonly used data types, events, exceptions and so onSystem.Collections: Includes classes and interfaces that define various collection of objects such as list, queues, hash tables, arrays, etcSystem.Data: Includes classes which lets us handle data from data sourcesSystem.Data.OleDb: Includes classes that support the OLEDB .NET providerSystem.Data.SqlClient: Includes classes that support the SQL Server .NET providerSystem.Diagnostics: Includes classes that allow to debug our application and to step through our codeSystem.Drawing: Provides access to drawing methodsSystem.Globalization: Includes classes that specify culture-related informationSystem.IO: Includes classes for data access with FilesSystem.Net: Provides interface to protocols used on the internetSystem.Reflection: Includes classes and interfaces that return information about types, methods and fieldsSystem.Security: Includes classes to support the structure of common language runtime security systemSystem.Threading: Includes classes and interfaces to supportmultithreadedapplicationsSystem.Web: Includes classes and interfaces that support browser-server communicationSystem.Web.Services: Includes classes that let us build and use Web ServicesSystem.Windows.Forms: Includes classes for creating Windows based formsSystem.XML: Includes classes for XML support
information hiding
Information Hiding
  • reduces software development risk
    • by shifting the code's dependency on an uncertain implementation onto a well-defined interface.
  • ensures
    • no other class has knowledge about attributes and/or behavior of the hidden class
    • unless published explicitly (by the class).
information hiding contd
Information Hiding (contd)
  • Information hiding in Visual Basic. Net
    • can be implemented using keywords public and private

Private keyword :

    • Used for attributes and behaviors
    • hides them from the world outside of the class.

Public keyword :

    • Used for properties and methods
    • other objects can access them
    • yet know nothing about their implementation.
  • Visual Basic .NET 
    • the easiest, most productive language, and tool for rapidly building Windows and Web applications.
  • People with very little programming experience can also develop powerful Windows applications
  • Since the real hard code is already written
    • makes life far easier
    • so what could take days in other PLs can be done in hours with VB.
gui development
GUI Development
  • Developing GUI applications with VB is a 3-step approach:
    • Design the appearance of application
    • Assign property settings to the objects of the program
    • Write the code to direct specific tasks at runtime
gui development contd toolbox window
GUI Development (contd) Toolbox Window
  • gives us access to all

controls, components,


gui development contd properties window
GUI Development (contd)Properties Window
  • allows us to set properties

for various objects at

design time.

gui development contd code design window
GUI Development (contd) Code design window
  • opens when we double-click on a form or any control
  • allows us to edit and write code.
web development
Web Development
  • VB.Net supports web development
  • The IDE is capable of the following:
  • ASP .NET Web Application:
    • allows to create web-based applications using IIS.
    • can create web pages,
    • web services.
  • ASP .NET Web Service:

- allows to create XML Web Services.

reality cost

    • Software Developers$5469.00
  • Pros of Visual Basic. Net are
    • Can build applications very rapidly
    • full access to the capabilities available in .NET Framework 1.1.
    • can call components running on any platform using open Internet protocols
    • can develop mobile Web applications for Internet-enabled mobile devices
    • can create reusable, enterprise-class code using full object-oriented constructs.
    • also enables you to leverage your existing code assets
  • Microsoft supplies
    • an automated VB6-to-VB.NET converter with Visual Studio .NET
    • but cannot convert all code
  • VB7 has large runtime as compared to VB6 runtime
  • Large class library
