Visual Basic

Visual Basic (VB) is a programming language in the BASIC family developed by Microsoft. ”Visual” stands for window management and a new way of programming.

To facilitate window handling, visual aids were also introduced as a complement to the programming. Visual Basic provides tools for creating and drawing the windows in Windows that were needed for the application that was developed. This visual creation is linked to code in Visual Basic to perform the desired functions.

Visual Basic was developed to facilitate the development of Windows programs adapted to the Microsoft Windows operating system.
