Francesco's e-book might actually help get to paintings swifter, probably assisting you study a couple of stuff you would not have stumbled on by yourself. The ebook isn't really a rehashing of the language manuals, as such a lot of of the bigger books are, yet an in depth compiling of coding concepts which are the result of Francesco's personal paintings. Tutorials span HTML, Dynamic HTML, scripting, and ASP programming-topics sorely lacking from visible Basic's documentation.

Sample text

The ForeColor and BackColor Properties Most visible objects expose ForeColor and BackColor properties, which affect the color of the text and the color of the background, respectively. The colors of a few controls—scroll bars, for example—are dictated by Microsoft Windows, however, and you won't find ForeColor and BackColor entries in the Properties window. In other cases, the effect of these properties depends on other properties: for example, setting the BackColor property of a Label control has no effect if you set the BackStyle property of that Label to 0-Transparent.

By default, Visual Basic creates controls with a three-dimensional aspect, unless you modify the value of this property to 0-Flat. You might decide to do so for visual consistency with older programs. For all your new applications, you should simply forget about the Appearance property and leave it at its default value (1-3D). You can have Visual Basic automatically attach a control to the border of its parent window by setting its Align property to a non-Null value. GIF" width=310 height=161 border=0> Figure 2-4.

By default, these properties are measured in twips, a unit that lets you create resolution-independent user interfaces, but you can switch to another unit, for example, pixels or inches, by setting the container's ScaleMode property. But you can't change the unit used for forms because they have no container: Left, Top, Width, and Height properties for forms are always measured in twips. For more information about the twip measurement unit, see the section "The ScaleMode Property" later in this chapter.
