  • VB .Net is developed by Microsoft
  • It is Visual Basic for .Net Platform
  • Ancestor of VB .Net is BASIC
  • In 1991, Microsoft added visual components to BASIC and created Visual Basic
  • After the development of .Net, VB was added with more set of controls and components and thus evolved a new language VB .Net
pros and cons
Pros and Cons
  • Pros
    • Faster development of programs
    • Rich set of controls
    • Object Orientation of language enhances modularity, readability and maintainability
  • Cons
    • Debugging larger programs is difficult, due to the absence of an effective debugger
features of vb net
Features of VB .Net
  • Object Oriented Language
  • We can drag controls from the tool bar and drop them on the form and write code for the controls
  • Runs on the CLR (Common Language Runtime)
  • Release of unused objects taken care by the CLR
creating vb net project in vs 2005
Creating VB .Net Project in VS 2005
  • Open Visual Studio 2005
  • Click File -> New -> Project
  • Choose Language as VB .Net
  • Choose Type (Either Console Application or what ever we want)
  • Give the path under which the project need to be saved
  • Click OK
input and output
Input and Output
  • Under the namespace System there is a class called Console
  • Console has 2 methods
  • ReadLine() – Reads a line from the user
  • WriteLine() – writes as line to the screen
  • Name spaces can be included in our code using the keyword imports
  • Eg:

Imports System.Console

data types and operators in vb net
Data types and Operators in VB .Net
  • Data types
    • Integer, string, single, double, boolean, char
  • Operators
    • Arithmetic (+,-,*,/,\,Mod)
    • Logical (Or, And)
    • Relational (=,<>,<,<=,>,>=)
string functions
String Functions
  • Len(str) – Length of the string str
  • Str.Replace(“old”,”New”) – Replaces Old with New in the string Str
  • Str.Insert(pos,”string”) – Inserts the string specified at the position pos in the string Str
  • Trim(str) – Removes the leading and trailing spaces in the string str
if else
If Else

If (Condition)


Statements executed if condition is true


Statements executed if condition is false


We can also have Else If block in If Else statements

select case
Select Case

Select Case var

Case 1

stmt1 // executed if var = 1

Case 2

stmt2 // executed if var = 2

Case Else

stmt3 // executed if var is other than 1 and 2

End Select

for loop
For Loop

For <<var>> = start To end Step <<val>>




For I = 1 To 10 Step 2



Here the values printed will be 1,3,5,7,9

do while loop
Do While Loop
  • Do While(a<>0)


a = a – 1


2. Do


a = a – 1

Loop While(a<>0)

do until loop
Do Until Loop
  • Do Until(a=0)


a = a – 1


2. Do


a = a – 1

Loop Until(a=0)

  • Software structure that is important in Object Oriented Programming
  • Has data members and methods
  • Blue print or proto type for an object
  • Contains the common properties and methods of an object
  • Few examples are Car, Person, Animal
  • Instance of a class
  • Gives Life to a class
  • Ram is an object belonging to the class Person
  • Ford is an object belonging to the class Car
  • Jimmy is an object belonging to the class Animal
subroutines and functions
Subroutines and Functions
  • Subroutines
    • Does not return any value
    • Can have zero or more parameters
  • Functions
    • Always Returns some value
    • Can have zero or more parameters
  • Used for initializing private members of a class
  • Name of the constructor should be New() always
  • Can have zero or more parameters
  • Does not return any value. So they are sub routines
  • Need not be invoked explicitly. They are invoked automatically when an object is created
  • A class can have more than one constructor
  • Every constructor should differ from the other by means of number of parameters or data types of parameters
  • Constructors can be inherited
  • Used for releasing memory consumed by objects
  • Name of the destructor should be Finalize() and the method is already defined in CLR. So we can only override it.
  • Does not return any value. Hence it is a subroutine
  • Does not accept any parameters
  • Only one destructor for a class
  • Destructors are not inherited
  • No need of explicit invocation. They are called when the execution is about to finish.
  • Array List
  • Sorted List
  • Hash Table
  • Stack
  • Queue
  • These can be accessed via the System.Collections namespace
array list
Array List
  • Array List is a dynamic array
  • Its size grows with the addition of element
  • Searching is based on the index
  • Sequential search is performed on elements
  • Hence it is slow
  • Occupies less space
sorted list
Sorted List
  • Elements are stored as key value pairs
  • They are sorted according to the key
  • Search is based on index as well as on keys
  • Hence faster than Array List
  • Occupies Medium amount of space
  • Keys cannot be duplicate or null
  • Values can be duplicated and also can be null
hash table
Hash Table
  • Hash table stores data as a key value pair
  • Here the keys can be duplicated
  • Search is based on the hash of key values
  • Very fast way of searching elements
  • Occupies large space
  • Stack is a data structure where elements are retrieved in the order opposite to which they are added
  • It implements LIFO (Last In First Out) algorithm
  • Its method called Push() is for adding elements
  • Its method Pop() is for removing elements
  • Queue is a data structure where elements are retrieved in the same order in which they are added
  • It implements FIFO (First In First Out) algorithm
  • Its method called Enqueue() is for adding elements
  • Its method called Dequeue() is for removing the elements
windows application
Windows Application
  • File -> New -> Project
  • Select Language as VB .Net
  • Select .Net template as Windows Application
  • Give the path where the application need to be saved
  • A application opens up with a Form
forms and other controls
Forms and other controls
  • Form is a container for other controls
  • We can place the following in a form
    • Label
    • Text Box
    • Check Box
    • Radio Button
    • Button
    • Date Picker
    • And more…
properties and events
Properties and Events
  • Every Control has a set of properties, methods and events associated with it
  • Eg Form
    • Properties
      • Name (program will use this name to refer)
      • Text (title of the form)
    • Methods
      • Show
      • Hide
      • Close
    • Events
      • Load
      • UnLoad
exception handling
Exception Handling
  • Exception is Run time error
  • It is not known at the compile time
  • Examples of exceptions
    • Divide by zero
    • Accessing non existing portion of memory
    • Memory overflow due to looping
  • In VB .Net, exception is handled via Try Catch Mechanism
try catch finally
Try Catch Finally


Suspicious code that may throw an exception to be written here

Catch ex As Exception

What to be done if exception occurs to be written here


Optional portion which will be executed irrespective of the happening of exception to be written here. Can contain code for releasing unnecessary space

file handling
File Handling
  • In the System Namespace, the IO class has several subclasses for file handling, text processing etc
  • Classes File, Directory are used for creating, deleting file or folders and also has methods to play with them
  • Class FileStream is used for creating and manipulating files
reader and writer
Reader and Writer
  • BinaryReader
    • This class has methods to read binary or raw data
  • BinaryWriter
    • This class has methods to write binary or raw data
  • StreamReader
    • This class has methods to read stream of data
  • StreamWriter
    • This class has methods to write stream of data
  • Stream is a channel through which an object (file in this case) is accessed
file handling33
File Handling
  • Open the file using FileStream class. This makes use of FileMode and FileAccess enumeration to specify how to open a file (for creating a new file or opening an existing file) and whether the file is read only or write only or read write
  • Associate a reader for the stream
  • Read the file and do the manipulations
file handling34
File Handling
  • Open a file stream for writing
  • Associate a writer
  • Write contents to file
  • Close the stream, so that it will be released back to the memory pool
operations on a file
Operations on a file
  • Create
  • Move
  • Copy
  • Replace
  • Read
  • Write
  • Delete
database connectivity
Database Connectivity
  • Following are important to get connected to the database and perform operations
    • Connection Object
    • Command Object
    • Operation on the Command Object
      • Using Dataset and Data adapter
      • Using Data Reader
  • If we use data adapter, it is called as disconnected architecture
  • If we use data reader, it is called as connected architecture
connection object
Connection Object
  • Dim con as New OdbcConnection(connectionstring)
  • Where connectionstring is a string that contains details about the server where the database is located, the name of the database, user id and password required for getting connected and the driver details
command object
Command Object
  • Dim cmd as New OdbcCommand(strCmd,con)
  • strCmd – is the select/insert/update/delete statement or exec <<storedProc>> command
  • Con is the connection object created in the first step
  • Properties – cmd.CommandType
    • This can be either Text or StoredProcedure
command methods
Command Methods
  • Cmd.ExecuteReader() – Returns one or more table row(s) – for select statement
  • Cmd.ExecuteScalar() – Returns a single value – for select statement with aggregate function
  • Cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() – Used for executing stored procedure or insert/update/delete statements
data reader and data set
Data Reader and Data Set
  • Data Reader
    • Dim dr as OdbcDataReader
    • This dr holds the result set present in datareader object
  • Data Set
    • Dim ds as New DataSet()
    • ds holds the result of select statement
    • Data adapter is used to fill the data set
data adapter
Data Adapter
  • Data adapter fills in the data set with the result of the select query
  • Dim da as New OdbcDataAdapter(cmd)
  • Cmd is the command object created
  • da.Fill(ds) fills the dataset
  • The data set can be set as a data source for various controls in the web form or windows form
