What is Visual Basic?
VISUAL BASIC is a high level programming language that has evolved from the earlier DOS version called BASIC. BASIC means Beginners’ All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. It is a relatively easy programming language to learn. The code looks a lot like English Language.

VB2008, VB2010, VB2012 , VB2013 and VB2015 are fully object oriented programming (OOP) languages. What kinds of programs can you create with Visual Basic? The answer is all kinds. We can use VB to create business software and educational programmes. Besides, you can create engineering applications and amusing games. Some of our VB sample codes are as follows:
