Karl Moore sums up this week's tutorial.

This week we took a deeper look at the controls available to Visual Basic developers, then fiddled with a few properties.

We went on to figure the difference between design-time and runtime - and changed a few control properties in code. And heck, even if you didn't enjoy it - I'm sure Roy did.

Before next week, why not have a serious tinker with Visual Basic - using the knowledge you've gained so far. Build a few sample programs and play around with properties. It's such trial and error that'll turn you into a VB genius, if you're not one already.

Try opening the samples provided with Visual Basic and taking a look at their design. Don't worry if you don't understand it all just yet, simply observe how controls are arranged on a Form and how some of the code changes their properties.

You might also want to try creating your own little test program and then saving it. Take a look at the files Visual Basic creates. Notice how there isn't just one, but numerous different files?

Next week, we'll be getting to grips with variables - plus, we'll be writing our very own password-checking program. Calm yourselves, fellow VB'ers, calm yourselves!

But until then, this is your stunningly stunning host, Karl Moore, saying goodnight for tonight. Goodnight!
