Visual Basic Review - ICA

  2. 2. Dear First Year, This review is given to you from the Variables up to the Select Case lesson just in case some of you are still unclear on certain topics. Good luck on your test and study well! Ms. Emily Trajano Computer Coordinator February 18, 2009
  3. 3. Variables, Operators & Functions
  4. 4. A. Variables
  5. 5. Variable A sign or a name that stands for a particular value in a program. It may also store information while the program is running.
  6. 6. <ul><li>Variables are assigned a data type that indicates what kind of data it will store and the amount of memory it will use. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Conventions in Naming a Variable </li></ul><ul><li>A name should be descriptive of the data it holds. It should be unique. </li></ul><ul><li>A variable must begin with a letter. </li></ul><ul><li>Name can be up to 255 characters long. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Conventions in Naming a Variable 4. Must not contain a space or characters used to identify data type such as ! # % & @ 5. Do not use dash to avoid confusion with the minus sign (-). Instead, use underscore _
  9. 9. Data Types <ul><li>Byte </li></ul><ul><li>Boolean </li></ul><ul><li>IntegerLong (long integer) </li></ul><ul><li>Single (single-precision floating-point) </li></ul><ul><li>Double (double-precision floating-point) </li></ul><ul><li>Currency (scaled integer) </li></ul><ul><li>DecimalDate </li></ul><ul><li>ObjectString (variable-length) </li></ul><ul><li>String (fixed-length) </li></ul><ul><li>Variant (with numbers) </li></ul><ul><li>Variant (with characters) </li></ul><ul><li>User-defined (using Type) </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>Declaring Variables </li></ul><ul><li>Explicit Declaration - variable is declared at the beginning of the procedure in the Declaration Section </li></ul>
  11. 13. Examples: Dim Num_1 as Integer Dim Age as String Dim Reg_DOB as Date Dim Name as String, Address as String, Num2 as Integer (3 variable declarations in one statement) Dim Price1, Price2, Price3 as Single (only Price 3 is declared as Single; Price1 and Price2 are considered Variants because they are not explicitly declared)
  12. 14. Declaring Variables 2. Implicit Declaration - variable is not formally declared. It is a result form other variable declarations
  13. 15. Examples: Dim Num1 as Integer Explicit Declaration Dim Num2 as Integer Explicit Declaration Num3 = Num1 * Num2 Implicit Declaration
  14. 16. In implicit declarations, the readability and clearness of the code is sometimes sacrificed. For VB to consider implicit declarations as error, you can use the Option Explicit clause. Option Explicit Dim Num1 as Integer, Gender as String
  15. 17. Scope of Variables 1. Public Statements – variable can be used in several forms of the projects
  16. 18. <ul><li>Scope of Variables </li></ul><ul><li>2. Private Statements – variable can only be used in the form where it is declared. </li></ul>
  17. 19. <ul><ul><li>a. Module-level – variables declared in the declarations section of the module. It is available to every control in the form. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>b. Procedure-level – variables declared inside a procedure. It is only available when the procedure is called. It will go back to its original value once it is called. </li></ul></ul>
  18. 20. LET’S ANALYZE THE CODE!!! Declarations Section Procedure for Command button 1 Procedure for Command button 2
  19. 21. Option Explicit – tells that no implicit declaration is allowed Dim Sum as Integer – declared the variable Sum as Integer - Sum can be used by any control in the form
  20. 22. Private Sub Command1_Click() Dim Num1 As Integer – Num1 is only declared for this procedure Static Product As Integer – Instead of Dim, Static is used to declare a variable that can be used by other controls in the form. (another way of declaring a module-level variable, only it is inside a procedure and not the declarations section)
  21. 23. Num1 = Num1 * 10 – The value of num1 is to be multiplied by 10 - once the variable is called, it will go back to its original value Product = Num1 * 5 – the value of Product is multiplied by 5 and will retain its value End Sub
  22. 24. Private Sub Command2_Click() Dim Num1 As Integer – Num 1 is declared as Integer Num1 = Num1 + 1 – the value of Num1 is incremented by 1 End Sub
  23. 25. B. Constants
  24. 26. Constant A constant stores value that does not change during the execution of the procedure.
  25. 27. 2 Types of Constants 1. Intrinsic Constants – defined by VB examples: vbTrue, vbBlack 2. User-defined Constants – defined by programmers who writes the code examples: Const Pi = 3.1416 Const Max_Num = 100
  26. 28. Object Browser The Object Browser displays all intrinsic constants that are related to the properties of the controls you created, including the procedures and modules you define for the project.
  27. 29. To open: Click the Object Browser button on the Standard Toolbar or Press F2 function key on the keyboard Description of intrinsic constant is found below the window.
  28. 30. C. Operators
  29. 31. 1. Mathematical & Text Operators – performs mathematical operations on values and variables Types of Operators: Operators – are symbols that represent a specific action
  30. 32. The order of evaluation: Parenthesis ( ), ^, *, /, , Mod, +, - Hi User! “ Hi ” & “User!” String concatenation &  1 25 / 4 Integer division 3 15 Mod 4 Remainder of division Mod 10 15 - 5 Subtraction -  19 15 + 4 Addition +  3 15 / 5 Division /  15 5 * 3 Multiplication *  25 5 ^ 2 Exponent (power of) ^ RESULT EXAMPLE DEFINITION OPERATOR
  31. 33. 2. Relational Operators – compares two values and returns a logical result of true or false Types of Operators:
  32. 34. True (10=5) OR (10>2) Logical OR  OR  True (10=10) AND (5>4) Logical AND  AND True 10<>5 Not equal to <> True 10<=10 Less than or equal to <=  True 10 >= 8 Greater than or equal to >=  False 10 < 8 Less than  <  True 10 > 8 Greater than  >  False 10 = 8 Equal to  =  RESULT EXAMPLE DEFINITION OPERATOR
  33. 35. 3. Logical Operators – applies a logical expression to one or more logical values Types of Operators:
  34. 36. True (10=5) OR (10>2) Logical OR  OR  True (10=10) AND (5>4) Logical AND  AND TRUE 10 = NOT 5 Negation NOT RESULT EXAMPLE DEFINITION OPERATOR

  78. 84. <ul><li>IF..THEN </li></ul><ul><li>Structure </li></ul>
  79. 85. If…Then Structure The If… Then structure presents a condition and if the condition is True , the statement or series of statements (contains event) in between the If and End If will be executed.
  80. 86. Syntax: If condition Then Statement/s End If
  81. 87. Example 1: If Score = 100 Then Lbl1.caption = “Perfect” End If
  82. 88. Example 2: If Price >= 100 Then Price = Price * .1 End If
  83. 89. B. IF..THEN…Else Structure
  84. 90. If…Then…Else Structure Like the If… Then structure, a condition will be presented and if the condition is True , the statement or series of statements (contains event) after the If statement will be executed, and if False , it will execute the statement after Else .
  85. 91. Syntax: If condition Then Statement/s Else Statement/s End If
  86. 92. Example 1: If score = 100 Then Lbl1.caption = “Perfect” Else Lbl1.caption = “With mistakes” End If
  87. 93. Example 2: If PName = “Anna” Then Lbl1.caption = “ANNA” MsgBox (&quot;Hello, Anna!!!&quot;) Else Lbl1.caption = “UNIDENTIFIED” MsgBox (&quot;Unauthorized Person!!!&quot;) End If

  89. 95. Output of Example 3: Output when Anna is entered Output when Rosie is entered
  90. 96. C. Nested IF Structure
  91. 97. Nested IF Structure The Nested If structure uses several conditions. If the condition is True , the statement/s after the If condition will be executed. If the condition is False , each condition in the ElseIF is evaluated until it gives a True result then the statement/s following it will be immediately executed. If no condition was met, the statement/s after Else will be executed.
  92. 98. Syntax: If condition1 Then Statement/s 1 ElseIf condition2 Then Statement/s 2 ElseIf condition3 Then Statement/s 3 Else Statement/s 4 End If
  93. 99. Example 1: If Num <=100 Then Num= Num + 1 ElseIf Num <= 200 Then Num = Num + 2 ElseIf Num<= 300 Then Num = Num + 3 Else Num = Num + 0 End If

  97. 103. D. SELECT Case
  98. 104. SELECT Case The Select Case presents several conditions. It is used instead of the Nested If because it is clearer and easier to use. It evaluates an expression once. The result is compared with several values, if they match, the statement in the statement block is executed.
  99. 105. Select Case expression Case Value1 Statement block 1 Case Value 2 Statement block 2 Case Value 3 Statement block 3 Case Value 4 Statement block 4 Case Else Statement block End Select Syntax:
  100. 106. Example 1: Select Case Subject Case 1 LblSubject.Caption = “Mathematics” Case 2 LblSubject.Caption = “Science” Case 3 LblSubject.Caption = “English” Case 4 LblSubject.Caption = “Filipino” Case 5 LblSubject.Caption = “Religion” Case 6 LblSubject.Caption = “Physical Education” Case 7 LblSubject.Caption = “Computer” Case 8 LblSubject.Caption = “Music” End Select
