Part II: The User Interface > Advanced Forms and Dialogs

Chapter 9. Advanced Forms and Dialogs

Forms have evolved considerably since their first appearance in Microsoft Visual Basic 1, yet many programmers fail to take advantage of all their new features. In most cases, programmers deal with forms as they did in Visual Basic 3, not realizing that the inner workings of forms has changed.

In this chapter, I focus both on regular forms and MDI forms, and I also explain how to create parameterized form components and how to implement drag-and-drop. I also describe several new Visual Basic 6 features, including dynamic control creation and the capability to deliver data-driven forms that can be reused against different data sources.
