About this title


Provides step-by-step instructions on using Visual Basic 6 for object-oriented programming, database programming, and Internet programming


If you're looking to try your hand at programming, Visual Basic is a good choice. Peter Norton's Guide to Visual Basic 6, by Peter Norton and Michael Groh, provides an introduction to this important development environment. The book is targeted toward new programmers and those with some coding background from other languages.

This 790-page book provides an excellent balance of tutorial information and practical examples of how to leverage the power of Visual Basic. The first 12 chapters provide an overview of the Visual Basic environment and the basics of object-oriented programming. Prudent use of annotated screen shots and diagrams, along with step-by-step coverage of basic terms and concepts, makes this first portion of the book very effective.

The text then moves into discussions of printing, file input/output, and data control. The authors cover all of the important aspects of data control and the Microsoft Jet database engine. The book also includes substantial discussion of how to interface Visual Basic with Microsoft Office 97, Outlook 97, and Internet Explorer--topics usually lacking in introductory texts.

A companion CD-ROM contains much of the example code in the book, as well as third-party utilities. If you're new to Visual Basic and have high hopes of becoming a serious developer, this title will take you much of the way. --Stephen Plain
