We will begin our discussion of controls by revisiting three controls—the TextBox, Label, and Button controls—that you have already worked with in earlier chapters. They are probably the controls that are used most often by Visual Basic developers. Figure 11.1 illustrates a typical data entry form utilizing each of these controls.
The basic controls presented here are discussed in more detail in Chapter 2. See the sections “Adding a TextBox Control,” “Labeling Your Program’s Controls,” and “Adding Command Buttons” in that chapter.
