The purpose of this project is to see if you can create an app on your own, rename the controls, and zip it up and send it to me. You app does not have to calculate anything.... I just want you to create an app that is like the one on page 45. You do not have to make it calculate anything!

  2. You understand how to add controls and name them.
  3. You start getting used to making a nice User Interface(UI).
  4. Begin to understand how VB & Windows work together.
  5. I want you to know how to set simple properties.

  • You must include the following features: 

  • The form must start in the center of the screen.
