If you double click the command button, it will open the Form Code Module and place you within the click event.  

You could write some code to bring up a Message Box, like this
Sub Command1_Click()

   MsgBox "Hello World!",VbInformation,"The world's oldest and most over-used demo"

End Sub

VB is an events driven lan. You would put your code in the event you want to fire up. Mcix shows you a prefect example for responding to the click event. You could put code in the mouseover event if you want something to happen when the user moves his/her mouse over the control.

In the programming Environment:

1. create a form (Form1)
2. add a command button (Command1)
3. double-click on Command1
    the following code window will appear:
     
         Private Sub Command1_Click()

         End Sub

4. Add a line of code between the two code lines so the whole sub-routine looks as follows:

         Private Sub Command1_Click()

           MsgBox "Hello World", vbOKOnly

         End Sub


5. press the "F5" key

6. click on the Command1 button

7. a message box should appear
