Visual Basic Terminology

Forms The basic component of Visual Basic applications; these objects create the interface that the user interacts with when the application is run. A form object is generally a window or a dialog box.
Controls Contained within form objects, each of these objects is suitable for a particular use such as entering text, displaying text, or accessing other applications.
Objects Any physical element or component of an application.
Properties An object’s attributes.
Methods An object’s actions.
Events An object’s responses.
Event-driven programming A programming method in which the user controls program flow and sequence by interacting with the user interface. Thus, there is no predetermined sequence; it varies based on responses to events triggered by the user.
Procedural programming A programming method in which the application itself controls program flow and sequence.
