LOGIN DATABASE PROGRAM USING VISUAL BASIC

THE LOGIN PROJECT USING VISUAL BASIC 2013 AND MS ACCESS 2013

This project is about creating a database selection, registration and login forms. We are using Microsoft access 2013  as a back end.

we are going first to create a form to select database that will contain our details

Then we shall create a form for registration of new users and finally we will create the login form so we have three procedures.

In this page we begin with the first one right away

Selection of database

Create a new project and name Login or any other name that you like.

Once the project is created and a new form displayed change the form text property to Login program.

Place a text box and a button on the form

Change the text property of the button to “SELECT” and its name to “btndatabase”

Change the name of the text box to “txtdatabase”

Double click the open file dialog to add it to your form.

Your form should now look like the one below

Login selection figure
Login database figure

Now when the button is clicked we are going to select our database that contains our details required for the program.

The database required for this project can be downloaded using this link database

The code for the select button

Private Sub btndatabase_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btndatabase.Click

OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog()

txtdatabase.Text = OpenFileDialog1.FileName

End Sub

The code will open the open dialog form and we can select the file (file path) that contains our login details

Double click the select button and enter the code in red and run your program

So far the program can only select the file path hence doing very little for us

lets now move to the next part of creating the registration form and its coding.
