Variable, Constant, Operators and Control Statement
Variables• Programming element used to store a value in the program while the program is running.• It is a name area in the memory which holds temporary data. EXAMPLE: Name = “Shaira” Age = text1.text
• EXPLICIT DECLARATION – declaring variable by typing DIM (dimension) statement and a variable name.Syntax: Dim Variable Name As Data type Example: Dim LastName As String• IMPLICIT DECLARATION – declaring a variable without the Dim Statement; simply use the variable on its own. Example: LastName=“Fernandez”
Constant• Meaningful Name that takes place of a number or a string that does not change.• Values that do not change during the execution of the program.Syntax: Const Constant Name As data type = value Example: const Pi As Single = 3.142 Score= 100
Operators• Operators are symbols that indicates operation to be performed on data.There are 3 types of Operators1. Arithmetic Operators2. Relational Operators3. Conditional Operators
Arithmetic Operators- Mathematical Operators that is used to compute inputs from users to generate results.Relational Operators – Operators that is used to compare two values basing on a certain conditions yields a TRUE or FALSE result.Logical Operators – Operators that determine if a particular condition is met.

Operators Description Example Result + Add 5+5 10 - Substract 10-5 5 / Divide 25/5 5 Integer Division 203 6 (disregards the decimal places) * Multiply 5*4 20 ^ Exponent (power of) 3^3 27 Mod Remainder of division 20 Mod 6 2 "George"&" & String concatenation "George Bush" "&"Bush"
Operators Description Example Result > Greater than 10>8 True < Less than 10<8 False Greater than >= 20>=10 True or equal to Less than or <= 10<=20 True equal to <> Not Equal to 5<>4 True = Equal to 5=7 False
Operators Description Operation will be true if either of the OR operands is true Operation will be true only if both the AND operands are true One sides or other must be true but XOR not both sides NOT Negate truth
Condition of AND OperatorCONDITION 1 CONDITION2 RESULT TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE FALSE TRUE FALSE FALSE•If there’s a FALSE the result is false.
Condition of OR OperatorsCONDITION 1 CONDITION2 RESULT TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE FALSE TRUE FALSE FALSE•If there’s a TRUE the result is true.
Condition of XOR OperatorCONDITION 1 CONDITION2 RESULT TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE FALSE TRUE FALSE FALSE•One sides or other must be true but not bothsides
Condition of NOT Operator CONDITION RESULT TRUE FALSE• Negate truth

Conditional Statement• It is one of the vital components in programming. It enables a program to respond in different manner every time a program is executed depending on the data entered.
Most Commonly Used Conditional Statement.1. If.. Then Statement2. If.. Then.. Else Statement3. If.. Then.. ElseIf Statement4. Select Case Statement
If.. Then Statement• The If...Then statement examines the truthfulness of an expression. It allows your Program to make a decision based on the certain condition.• SYNTAX: If condition then Statement/s End If
If.. Then.. Else Statement• The If...Then statement offers only one alternative: to act if the condition is true. Whenever you would like to apply an alternate expression in case the condition is false, you can use the If...Then...Else statement.
If.. Then.. Else StatementSYNTAX:If Condition Then If Score = 100 Then Statement1 Label1.caption =“Perfect” ElseElse Label1.caption =“with Mistakes” Statement2 End IfEnd If
If...Then...ElseIf StatementSYNTAX: The If...Then...ElseIfIf Condition1 Then statement acts like Statement1 the If...Then...ElseElseIf Condition2 Then expression, except Statement2 that it offers asElseIf Condition 3 Then many choices as Statement 3 necessary.End If
SELECT CASE STATEMENT• If you have a large number of conditions to examine, the If...Then...Else will go through each one of them. Visual Basic offers the alternative of jumping to the statement that applies to the state of the condition.
SyntaxSelect Case ExpressionCase Expression1 Select Case Subject Statement1 Case “Mathematics”Case Expression2 lblsubject.caption=“Mathematics” Statement2 Case “Science”Case Expression3 lblsubject.caption=“Science” Statement3 Case “English”End Select lblsubject.caption=“English” End Select
LOOP Structure• A loop is an expression used to repeat an action. Visual Basic presents many variations of the loops and they combine the Do and the Loop keywords.
Do...While Loop• Used to execute a block of statements in an unspecified number of times while a condition is false on the first pass. The statement is not executed.Syntax: Dim Number As Integer Number = 10Do while conditions Do While Number <20 Statement/s Number=Number+2loop Print Number Loop
Do...Loop...While StatementReverse formula ofthe do while Dim Number As Integerstatement. Number = 10Syntax: DoDo Number=Number+2Statement(s) Print NumberLoop While Loop While Number <20Condition
Do...Until...Loop Statement• This loop will first examine the Condition, instead of examining whether the Condition is true, it will test whether the Condition is false.Syntax: Example:Do Until Condition Dim Number As Integer Statement(s) Number=30 Loop Do Until Number <=20 Number= Number-2 Print Number Loop
Do...Loop...Until Statement• An alternative to the Do...Until...loop consists of executing the Statement first. Example: Syntax: Dim Number As Integer Do Number=30 Statement(s) Do Loop Until Number= Number-2 Condition Print Number Loop Until Number <=20
