ideas on programming eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0

I'm developing a program with eVB using eMbedded Visual Tools 3.0. I just starting learning eVB last week, so I'm kinda fresh at this. What I need is some help on strategies when developing it.
The first screen will contain several buttons. when I click it, a new "page" will show. This page will have more buttons you can click on, kinda like Yahoo.
Should I use forms to make these "pages" or is it another way? Should I first hide the form that was clicked and show the new page? Are all the "pages" loaded when I start the program? As you see I'm not sure of what do to or if my ideas is useable. I just need ideas on loading/closing "pages".
Can someone please give a good answer on this.

liberator,

It sounds like you need quite some background before starting to do anything useful with eVB. Based on your question, I doubt anybody can give you a quick answer in order to give you a whole eVB training course.

You will need first to learn the basics of VB, either by taking free courses on line at this site:

or by getting some books on how to program in VB from:

As you can see, people spend many hours with hundred of pages of textbooks before they can do anything with eVB.

I would just let you know that I have programmed VB before, when used in ASP and I have programmed in C++. So I have some programming background.
My question was just to get some ideas on how I should "load each page". Should I use frames or forms, or show/hide forms or setfocus, etc. You get the picture.
Hope that helped.

liberator,

Sorry but I misunderstood the way you phrased your questions. eVB mostly deals only with forms but not pages.

One program can contain one or more forms. The program starts by loading the startup form. From that form you can have controls in which you can call other forms, etc..
During this time, you can show or hide any form as you wish.

You can assign the startup form by going to 'Project', 'Project Properties', and under 'Startup Object' at the 'General' tab, you click at the form you want to appear when the progam starts.
