Synopsis:
Ideal for those who have never programmed before or who have only rudimentary programming experience. This introduction to Visual Basic begins with the problem-solving and programming concepts that are fundamental to all programming-to help students master the fundamentals required to create programs from scratch. The first four chapters use a template to emphasize fundamentals without having to deal with Windows environment considerations (e.g., events and objects). The remainder continues to build on fundamentals in a Windows object-oriented event-driven environment. Along the way, students develop a solid understanding of program analysis, design, language elements, documentation, control structures, testing, algorithms, input/output processing, file processing, and data structures. Note: Book contains CD-ROM containing Visual Basic.* Meets most of the curriculum requirements as specified by the ACM and the IEEE Computer Society for PR: Introduction to a Programming Language. * Discusses algorithms and data structures. * Covers documentation, testing, debugging and troubleshooting. * Explains multimedia programming, use of the Windows Component object Model (COM) (formerly Object Linking and Embedding (OLE), and database programming. * Covers both Visual Basic 4 and Visual Basic 5. * When there are differences between how Versions 4 and 5 use the Visual Basic development system, the text explains how to perform operations using both versions. * Explains programming principles from the ground up. * Starts with a Visual Basic template (the "Introduction Template") to teach structured code and introduces a simple simulator based on giving instructions to a simulated robot. * As the text progresses, students are eased into using event-driven programming and visual interface design. * Students eventually move beyond the Introduction Template to learn the advanced programming techniques that take full advantage of Visual Basic and third-party add-on resources. * Uses scenarios of a fictitious small manufacturing company - Cougar Canoe Company - to provide context for programming in the real world. * Introduces new material when it is needed in terms of solving a problem - so immediately uses the knowledge for both business and technical applications as related to the company. * Uses explicit data type variables and conversions and variable naming conventions. * Encourages the use of stringent data typing that would be required for languages such as C++ and Java. * Explains how to use on-line help included with Visual Basic to prepare them to move beyond the text. * Follows the same format in each chapter: * List of objectives. * The scenario of an application requirement that illustrates why the content is covered. * Topics explaining the content - examples, sample problems with solutions, documentation, troubleshooting: debugging and testing, highlights of key points. * Hands-on exercises (with questions) to provide practice with the content. * Additional problem solving to check mastery of content. * Provides appendices with useful references to: * Conventions. * Language elements. * Resources - including Internet resources. * A glossary. * Features an accompanying CD-ROM that includes: * A working copy of Visual Basic 4. * A simplified on-line help system that can be accessed using a Web browser. * All the programming files and examples. * Supplemental information used in the exercises. * Answers to the questions and solutions to most problems.
