Designing a web application

saint_johannsaint_johann Posts: 39Member
Hi All,

It's been some time since I've been here. For the first time since starting to develop in VB, I have a requirement to design a web application. To date, I've only designed desktop applications.

I have no idea where to start. I looked into the DHTML projects in VB6, but it seems cumbersome.

Please steer me in the right direction so that I may start investigating the various possibilities. I'd prefer not to have to learn an entire new language in the process.

Thanx.
Regards,

^J^

    Well I hate to break it to you but you are going to need to know at least:

    HTML

    Your your using a server-side technology such as ASP, then you will be using VBScript as a language, which is a condensed version of Visual Basic w/out strongly typed variables ...

    Get use to ...

    [code]
    Dim sName
    [/code]

    Instead of ...

    [code]
    Dim sName As String
    [/code]

    Because everything is a Variant in VBScript. Finally, you could try ASP.NET, but that entails knowing VB.NET and Visual Studios.NET or Web Matrix.

    Of course if you want dynamic browser behavior, then you would have to learn some JavaScript.

    I've been web programming for 5 years and still feel like I know nothing, so have fun and do not hesitate to ask questions.

    :
    [blue]If you are still using previous version of the Visual Studio, you may use Visual Interdev to create Web Applicatiion. There are a lot of on-line tutorials on net. I like this one http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp choose Learn ASP/HTML[/blue]

    VB isn't suited to web programming. Are you stuck using ASP or ASP.NET? Or some other server? What are your options? Learning a new language might be the best choice available.
