VB for HMI application

VB for HMI application

VB for HMI application

(OP)
I haven't worked with VB yet but am wondering how to get started creating a HMI program using VB.  Any suggestions on where to start (book, website)?

RE: VB for HMI application

Start with a really simple tutorial. You should get through this:
http://www.officecomputertraining.com/vbtutorial/tutpages/default.asp
and do all the exercises etc in a couple of weeks full-time.

I'd move onto a bit more ADO next, try:
http://www.w3schools.com/ado/default.asp

You will then need to get started with some relational database stuff. You can download MSSQL BooksOnLine (this is essential knowledge for any serious DB stuff) from:
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinfo/productdoc/2000/books.asp

When you've got all that sorted then come back and we can find some basic stuff for system analysis and interface design for you.

Good Luck
