Chapter 6. Managing Program Flow with Visual Basic’s Control Structures
In this hour, we will cover
Using conditional statements
Identifying the types of looping constructs Visual Basic supports
Understanding the differences between subroutines and functions
Using subroutines and functions
In the preceding hour we looked at variables and operators in Visual Basic, two important concepts in any programming language. In this hour we examine an equally important aspect of all programming languages: control structures.
Control structures are constructs that alter the control flow during a program’s execution. Without control structures, programs are executed by running the first line of code, ...
