2.7 Overview of the Code Structure

You have learned that the code in event procedures handles the events and that when developing code for these procedures, you should use the event procedure templates provided by the IDE. You have also learned that the order of the procedures in the code window is not important because they are invoked by the event, not by the order in which they appear. Also, in general, code in a procedure is executed top down. But is there some kind of code in a procedure that will not get executed in sequence?
In terms of the order in which statements are executed, there are basically two types of statements: (1) statements that bring results and execute sequentially and (2) statements that direct flow of execution control. You will study each of these types in detail in later chapters, but here is a brief look at each type.
