Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express


Microsoft Visual Basic has a well-designed user interface which can be highly customized. The View menu has a sub-menu called Other Windows which populates a list of all possible panes and you can visualize each one of them if you click on it. Toolbars is another sub-menu which can help you to show or hide any of the eleven available program toolbars. By default only the Standard toolbar is shown, but you can add or remove icons to it if you like. The Tools menu is the other place where you can go if you want to reach the Extension Manager, change the program Settings, customize more program features or populate the Options window.

As an application developed by Microsoft we see that it is designed very well, but of course we would like to see some more of it. The lack of a built-in help file is kind of inconvenient to all users and can be included in the next program version.

If you need to expand the features of the Microsoft Visual Basic Express edition you can activate the Expert settings from the Settings menu. Once you start using the app you can add code by typing it or by using the GUI. There is also an auto-complete feature, whose name is IntelliSence, that is highly accurate and can improve the speed of writing and reduce the chance for errors. Basic debugging tools can also accelerate the developers' productivity.


Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express is an excellent training program for beginners and people who want to take a look at the basics of the Visual Basic programming language. You can use it freely, but if you want to have the full version you have to refer to the whole Visual Studio suite.
