Visual Basic Toolbox

Thursday, August 6, 2009 ·

The Visual Baisc Toolbox contains the objects and controls that you can add to forms to create the user interface of your VB applications. In the next time I'll explain how to place the controls from toolbox into Visual Basic Screen Design area in Screen Design Window. This toolbox is the General Toolbox. There is also a Datareport Toolbox that contains objects and controls that you can use for your Datareport design.

You can add additional controls to the Toolbox by using Components command on the Project menu. Also you can right-click anywhere in the Toolbox and select Component from the pop up menu.
