Visual Basic 2012 Tutorial

Visual Basic 2012 is one of the latest versions of Visual Basic launched by Microsoft in 2012. Visual Basic 2012 is almost similar to Visual Basic Express 2010 and Visual Basic 2008, but it has added many new features.

    Hi. I need some help. Can you write me code to:
    1. read customer details from Customer file (e.g. record would be “John,Smith,0422123456,Yes”)
    2. display list of customers in list box
    3. add new customer to the list box (via text boxes – “FirstName,Surname,Mobile,VIP”)
    4. save updated customer list back to Customer file
    5. calculate Total cost of each order (form has Product combobox with options Ink and Toner, and a Quantity textbox) (Total cost would be Quantity * Product Price – Discount (5%)
    6. write order to Order file (would probably have FirstName,Surname,Mobile,Product,Quantity,TotalCost
