Loop The Loop (For Loop)

Icon Leave Comment
The basic structure of a For Loop

For {Current} As {Type} = {From} To {UpTo} Step {Stepping}



{Current} = Variable
{From} = Constant or Variable
{UpTo} = Constant or Variable
{Stepping} = Constant or Variable

Writing a loop that goes from 1 to 10

Recursive Methods.

Icon Leave Comment
Recursive Methods are method that called themselves from with the body of their definition.

Lets do the classic Fibonacci
 Public Function Fib(ByVal x As Integer) As Integer  If x < 1 Then Return 0  Return Fib(x - 1) + x End Function

To see how it works lets step through it manually.

Function are like Subroutines which can also return a value.

Methods (Subroutines)

There are two basic types of method in VB.NET, the Subroutine and the Function.

Using Methods lets you break up code, into separate reusable sections (Methods) of code.

The difference between is this
A Function returns a value, whereas a Subroutine doesn't.

You have been using a Subroutines, without knowing.

Takes: ObjectA Comparison_Operand ObjectB
Returns: Boolean (Note: This is Generally True, but not always. Why is for a later Post.)

=    Equals To

The simplest of them. Do this equal that?

Boolean Logic Operators
Evaluates the opposite value. This called Negation.

A      Z
False  True
True   False

Dim A As Boolean = FalseIf Not A Then Console.WriteLine("A was False")End If

When A and B are both True value is True, otherwise value is False.

A      B      Z
False  ...

Conditionals (IF Statements)

So far the code you have seen has been very simple, today I'm going to introduce a new concept.
That concept is conditionals.


A conditional is an expression that when is evaluated returns a Boolean (True or False).

The most basic structure for a conditional is that of the IF statements

If {Condition Exp...

Project 2: Variables

Defining a Variable

Dim {Variable Name} As {Type}

What this saying is reserve me a piece of memory big enough to store an object of this type and name a reference to that location with the variable name.

Module Module1  Sub Main()    Console.WriteLine("Variables")    Dim A As Integer   End SubEnd Module
