• Events are things like mouse clicks, key presses, etc. If the user isn't doing anything, there are no raised events. Open an application like Notepad or Calculator. What happens? Nothing. It just sits there. There's nothing *for* it to do until you interact with it. In Visual Basic, Windows Form programming is pretty much event-driven. There are visual elements (buttons, text boxes, combo boxes, radio buttons, etc.) for the user to choose from/interact with. Depending on their actions, your code will do something different. Could you imagine if you were typing an answer on AB, and all of a sudden, it saved your partially-typed answer and took you to some random website? You'd be upset and lost. You expect your computer to wait until you click "Submit" before it takes your input and runs with it.
