    Question Where and what is needed to start..

    Im curious as to what a person needs to start learning Visual Basic. It seems thats the language of choice that people are using for carpcs. Can someone tell me where to go to get resources to start my own software and what i need to program it. Im lost as to where to begin. I would like to say i am fully satisfied with whats out but i am not. It seems that each one has good features but each one lacks features the other has. Frodo in my opinion has the best one going. But it lacks a video section to play mpeg/avi ect aswell as an embedded section to add all his hice little addons liek frodocam/frodopictures. Both of which are nice but seperate from the actuall application. Mediacar does not have a database but does have an ebmbedded section which is not bad for applications that frodo makes. So im intersted to try to make one that suits what i want specifically. Someone please help.

    Thanks in advance........

    Get vb6 and play about with it till you get better and better thats how most guys here do it, you will need experience to make ca ar pc app though unless your one fast learner, Good luck

    FrodoPlayer plays videos on the main screen and dvd's as well. What are you talking about ?


    As far as your question is concerned, get a good reference book and search the web for tutorials. I can point you to some links later.

    in regards to replies

    Thanks for the tip on the software needed. I suppose i just need books on the program and how to start VB. Any recourses?

    Frodo yes it plays video on the main screen but its a small screen. Unless you can make that bigger and i dont know about it. The one mediacar has allows you to change screen sizes and is on a seperate screen. Im not knocking yor stuff man. I did say its the best one i have seen. Just a few thigns i would add if i knew how .

    If you double-click it it goes full screen. The next version will be a little beefier.
    I didn't think you were knocking, just thought you were ill-informed

    If you want fullscreen:
    Yes. Go into settings and uncheck use advanced screen settings.

    If you want exact control:
    If you want to have exact control over size and postition, leave it checked
    and edit the position and size under [ADVANCED] in frodoplayer.ini

    I've had a few programming classes but nothing on the level I code now.
    Mostly all they did was get me interested. I've programmed a teeny bit off
    and on for years, but I didn't start to really get into it and learn until about
    a year ago.

    If you have the bug and can stand aggravation, then you are as good
    as gold once you learn concepts, the rest is just syntax

    Confirming needs

    I am hooked on the learning. I know php quite well and i have done some scirpting for mirc. Not sure if that will help at all. I just need someplace to go to get me going. I doubt playing with a program like vb6 teach me what i need to know. Please be a guide in the right direction. Is VB6 the name of the program? or is it Visual Studio 6? And any website you can think of or books that oyu knwo fo that are good for me to start with. SOmthgin with some sample starting code or somthing?
