VB as Event-driven & Object-based Language!
Visual Basic is not an "Object Oriented Language" its an "Object based Language" because, in VB we cannot implement Object Oriented Concepts like: Inhertiancy, Polymorphism, Encapsulation and Abstraction.
But it is an Event drive programming, easy to develop applications. VB is used to Devlop Graphical User Interface Applications (GUIs). VB is Object Bsed Event Driven Programming Languge as we use Objects to create our Applications such as Text Box, Command Button on Form and it is also called Event Driven Language because anything we do on VB application such as Click MOuse on command Button to execute any command, or enter the text in text box etc. every thing is an event that's why we call it Object Based, Event-Driven Programming.
