Part I: The Visual Basic 2010 Environment > Navigating Visual Basic 2010

Hour 2. Navigating Visual Basic 2010

What You’ll Learn in This Hour:

  • Navigating Visual Basic

  • Using the Visual Studio 2010 Start Page to open and create projects

  • Showing, hiding, docking, and floating design windows

  • Customizing menus and toolbars

  • Adding controls to a form using the toolbox

  • Viewing and changing object attributes using the Properties window

  • Working with the many files that make up a project

  • How to get help

The key to expanding your knowledge of Visual Basic is to become as comfortable as possible—as quickly as possible—with the Visual Basic design environment. Just as a carpenter doesn’t think much about hammering a nail into a piece of wood, performing actions such as saving projects, creating new forms, and setting object properties should become second nature to you. The more comfortable you are with Visual Basic’s tools, the more you can focus your energies on what you’re creating with the tools.
