Product Description

From the Back Cover

With this completely up-to-date tutorial and reference, you'll quickly learn how to develop Visual Basic (VB) programs that leverage the latest features of Vista and .NET 3.0. The tutorial section walks you through VB.NET from scratch, providing you with in-depth descriptions of the development environment, basic program syntax, and standard controls. You'll also explore the fundamental concepts in object-oriented programming with VB.

In the comprehensive reference section, you'll find out how to take advantage of specific VB features. Expert Rod Stephens shows you how to draw images, use GDI+ routines, and generate printed output. You'll also discover how to build an application that interacts with its environment, save and load data in external sources, and use standard dialog controls. This approach makes it easier than ever to learn this powerful language and create your own dynamic programs.

What you will learn from this book

  • The best methods for mastering the new features of VB.NET
  • Steps for implementing custom controls and drag and drop

  • Ways to use trickier class issues such as private class scope, declaring events, and shared variables and methods

  • Strategies for creating new classes designed to work with specific data types

  • How to define an interface using XAML

  • Techniques for building service-oriented applications using the Windows® Communication Foundation (WCF)

HASH(0x9ee59ad4) out of 5 stars Boring and badly organized May 25 2007
By Daniel Abdullah As Salaaf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although I have out-dated programming experience, this book is written using the most boring method of teaching and I found that this book is really not worth it. I wish I picked another book. I learned more from a free online tutorial.

This author should stick to programming and never write a book again.
