Step 2: Create a Visual Basic Project

At this stage, we're ready to create our AppForge project and begin coding. Start Visual Basic 6 and select AppForge Project from the New Project dialog box. Doing this sets several compilation and project defaults and loads the AppForce ingots, ActiveX controls that function in both the Visual Basic development environment and on the PalmOS. These ingots include common user-interface widgets such as the AFButton, AFCheckBox, AFGrid, AFLabel, AFListBox, and AFTextBox. All AppForge projects require a Sub Main() to be defined and set as the startup object, so your first step should be to create a new module—name it whatever you want; I chose modCustomerDatabase—and set that as the default start object. This setting can be accomplished by selected Project/Properties and setting the Startup Object to Sub Main().
