Introduction


When Visual Basic 1.0 was introduced in the early 1990s, it greatly simplified Windows application development. Visual Basic 2005continues the tradition by providing a programmer-friendly environment in which you can write powerful desktop, web-based, and mobile applications quickly and easily.

In this introductory chapter you'll see just how easy it is to write a variety of applications by developing a simple application in three Visual Basicsupported flavors: a desktop application (" Windows Forms"), a console application, and a web-based application ("Web Forms" via ASP.NET).

The three recipes in this chapter are meant to be read as a set. The first recipe, which focuses on Windows Forms, includes additional background information concerning the logic of the application developed in all three recipes. Be sure to read this recipe first.
