In the previous post we have learned how to get started with VB in Visual Studio and we also created a "Hello World" Program. Hope that you are now familiar with Visual Studio environment and the Structure of a VB program.

So now its time to proceed forward in our journey of learning VB

Now we will learn how to declare variables and assign values to them.

Take a look at following code

Above code assigns "x" value "7" and "y" value "x+3", so its pretty easy to understand that Console.WriteLine(y) will display value "10"

Step 2:
Click on File ->New ->Project
Step 3:
Under Templates, Select Visual Basic and then Console Application
Step 4:
Name your project and click "Ok"

Will now have a window like this:

Sub Main()

End Sub

End Module

The above is your default VB code which must be there to start with.
Module Module1 is your main container of code and
Sub Main() is a sub procedure

Remember that in VB

Single line of code means single statement unlike C,C++,C# etc where you end with a s…
