Panel or Form?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to VB and have a question.

what is the difference between a panel and a form?

I've done some database creation using M Access (I'm not an expert!!) and this has helped me to understand VB.

Is a form in Vb the same as a form in access - or is a panel the same as a form in Access?

It's probably an easy answer, but hey, I'm a beginner!! :P

Many thanks for your help and advice.

I try to avoid Access at all costs, so I shall just explain what they are in VB.

A "Form" is a window, with a title bar, min/max/x buttons, etc.

A "Panel" is a container inside a form for other controls, so you can change the .Visible for the panel to hide/show all the control inside, etc.
