INTRODUCTION TO VB.NET
First of all, everyone has a question such as what is a programming language and what else can I do by learning computer programming languages?
Programming languages are known as OOPs (Object Oriented Programming Languages and POPs (Procedural Oriented Programming Languages) which are two different methods being carried to develop projects in the many different purposes of using by many different personnel, organisations and companies in the world.
In This Tutorial:
VB.NET is a computer programming language developed by Microsoft and was first released in 2002 to replace Visual Basic 6. It is an Object Oriented Programming Language, which means that it supports the features of Object Oriented Programming it includes encapsulation, polymorphism, abstraction, and inheritance.
The language was designed in such a way that it is easy to understand to both novice and advanced programmers. Since VB.NET relies on the .NET framework, programs written in the language run with much reliability and scalability. With VB.NET, you can create applications that are fully object-oriented, similar to the ones created in other languages like C++, Java, or C#. Programs written in VB.NET can also interoperate well with programs written in Visual C++, Visual C#, and Visual J#. VB.NET treats everything as an object.
About .Net Framework in Visual Studio;
The .NET Framework is a proprietary software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Windows platforms. It was the predominant implementation of the CLI-(Common Language Infrastructure) until being superseded by the cross-platform .NET project. It includes a large class library called FCL-(Framework Class Library) and provides language interoperability; it means each language can use code written in other languages, across several programming languages. Programs written for .NET Framework execute in a software environment named the CLR-(Common Language Runtime). The CLR is an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. As such, computer code written using .NET Framework is called "managed code". FCL and CLR together constitute the .NET Framework.
The programmers can be accessible the features whilst having FCL; the user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. Programmers produce software by combining their source code with .NET Framework and other libraries. The framework is intended to be used by most new applications created for the Windows platform. Microsoft also produces an integrated development environment for .NET software called Visual Studio.
Features in Visual Basic.Net;
VB.NET has now arrived a long term serve .Net framework 6.0 to be supported to run the programs.
It's a Modern, general purpose programming language.
It's Object and Component oriented programming language.
It's a Easy to learn and Structured language.
It's an ability to produces efficient programs.
It can be compiled on a variety of computer platforms.
It's Boolean Conditions, Indexers, Standard Library and Assembly Versioning.
It's properties, events and also automatic garbage collection.
It's not case sensitive like other languages such as C++ and Java.
It's delegates, events management and easy-to-use generics as well.
It's Windows Forms, you can inherit your form from an already existing form
It's conditional compilation and simple multithreading that it allows your apps to deal with multiple tasks simultaneously.
It's attributes, which are tags for providing additional information regarding elements that have been defined within a program.
