Now that you've reviewed the elements of your generated project, let's test the code before continuing. To run an application from within Visual Studio, you have several options; the first is to click the Start button, which looks like the Play button on a tape recorder. Alternatively, you can go to the Debug menu and select Start. Finally, the most common way of launching applications is to press F5.
Once the application starts, an empty form is displayed with the standard control buttons (in the upper-right corner) from which you can control the application. The form name should be Professional VB.NET, which you applied earlier. At this point, the sample doesn't have any custom code to examine, so the next step is to add some simple elements to this application.
