About Console Tutorial, Q&A and ZuneCardr 2.0

By Visual Basic, Published 5th October 2008, Comments?


Coming a day early is the About Console tutorial, showing how to create a very simple information console window application, this tutorial is less than five steps long but shows the basics of a console application as it is without the overhead of a normal Windows application such as Windows/Forms and other UI components, hopefully it will be useful. The On-screen Keyboard seems a popular idea for a tutorial so this will be available as soon as possible! Keep looking for new tutorials each Monday, next week will the the Database tutorial! Keep your suggestions coming for future Tutorials via the Blog!

You can find all the Tutorials for Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition and prior version of Visual Basic in the Tutorials Section.


In this regular section of the Weekly Update: Q&A. This answers Visual Basic related questions asked via Blog and the website Visual Basic.

No specific questions to answer this week except to say that in the FTP Client Tutorial the Cut, Copy and Paste are there for the txtURL box or where you type the website address, they don't copy text from the Browser component itself (although you could change it to do this!).

Remember you can post your Questions via the Visual Basic Weekly Update topic on the Blog or via any of the "Visual Basic" related topics on the Blog, and they will be answered here!
