Getting Started (Continue)
Look at the form with the title bar Form1.
This is how your program will look like.
Everything you will place on this form will appear in your program.
As you can see, your form is currently empty.
You didn't program anything yet, but lets run the program!

Click on the Play button in the toolbar (Figure 4)

Now your program is running (Figure 5):

As you can see, the form is empty.
You can move the form, minimize and maximize it.

To stop the program from running, you can click on the Stop button
in the Toolbar (Figure 6), or click the form's X button (Figure 7).
It's very recommended that you will always close your programs using the
form's X button instead of the Visual Basic Stop button.
It's like shutting Windows From the Start button, instead of Pressing
the Power button.
