I am a v.b programmer. I installed Gambas3 on Ubuntu 13.04. The problem is when I create a new project and put the objects on the form then run the project no objects visible on the form. Note: the folder which I put project on is empty.

  • Select one control at a time and input some string at their text field property (Just like at Visual Studio)

  • Double click the button and the source editor will open, at the respective event handler provide some action, in mine i opted to change label's text property on click:

Public Sub Button1_Click()

    Label1.Text = "You pressed the button, good!"
