Re: How i can change forms backcolor through coding in...

Ok you have 3 choices
assuming your form name is main.

main.backcolor =
this.backcolor =
me.backcolor =

you can type your form name followed by the . to get all options for changing it peoperties,
or you can type this. refering to the form your are currently in, this has the effect just as the form name,
If you are programming on the formitself you can use
me. same effect as the form name..

How to run vb

How to Run a Visual Basic Program on a PC By an eHow Contributor

Like C++, C Sharp and Java, Visual Basic (VB) is an object oriented programming language. Recently it was integrated to the Microsoft .NET Framework. The .NET Framework is a software infrastructure that speeds up program development. It is supported by the Microsoft Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Microsoft's chief programming environment, and that of SharpDevelop.
Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Visual Microsoft Studio and .NET Framework
  1. Launch your Microsoft Visual Studio. It is a "heavy" application so depending on how much RAM you have it may take a few minutes to load.
  2. Click the Project tab on the first screen. Notice two buttons at the bottom of the screen named "New Project" and "Open Project." Since the tutorial assumes that this is your first VB program, click the "New Project" button. If you worked on a project before, its name will appear in an area labeled "Open an Existing Project" with a hyperlink that opens the project.
  3. Select "Windows Application" in the "Visual Basic Projects" folder if you intend to run your end program on a computer running a Microsoft Windows operating system. Focus in the "Name" text box near the bottom. Change the name from the default to something more descriptive such as "MyFirstVBProgram." Leave the Location to the default value to save your project to the "My Documents" folder. Press OK.
  4. Concentrate on the grey square area with the arrays of dots. This is the "form." The pinboard shows where components like buttons and text boxes will be installed to make a complete graphic user interface (GUI). The purpose of the grid is to align the components.
  5. Run your program. Click "Debug" from the menu bar. Click "Start" from the drop down menu. Alternatively, you can press F5 on your keyboard.
  6. Enjoy your first Visual Basic program in its simplest form. It is identical to the form in Step 4 except that the dots are gone. What you are looking at is a stand alone program that exists as an ".exe" file having the same name as your project. You can find it under the MyFirstVBProgram folder by default.
  7. Understand the difference between the two distinct environments of the IDE, the Design Environment and the Debug Environment. You saw the Design Environment in Step 4 of this tutorial. That was the environment where you could design a GUI on the form using your mouse. The Debug Environment takes over during the compilation interval in Step 5. That is where you can insert break points in your source code so that you test the correctness of the program.
