Default Object oriented programming with VB6

Hi,

I am using VB6, and want to find some good web site tutorials/tips on object oriented programming with VB6 (not VB.NET).

I am having trouble tracking any down.

Alternatively can you recommend a good book on object oriented programming with VB6?

Please can you help?

Many thanks.

James

I posted this in VB How To, but I think it will be most useful to beginners, so I am reposting this here:

I am not really sure what you mean on object oriented. VB is for the most part OO and you can't really avoid it. However the best general book I have seen on VB is from Microsoft press, (sorry wrox) called [u]Programming Visual Basic 6.0</u> by Francesca Balena its a little pricy but well worth the money. As for websites, I think the best website at explaining concepts is http://www.vb2themax.com/.

Yehuda,

I am quite sure it's possible to program VB6 in a non-object-oriented way!

What I am after is the basics of syntax and structure for creating classes/properties etc.

James,

I agree you could avoid it. However, most of VB is built with objects. Even beginners books on VB include OO because VB was built around OO. I am not saying you can't program in VB without it. I am merely saying that most general VB books include it, so you shouldn't need to go buy a special book for it. Sorry if I was unclear.

Yehuda
