Pro .NET 2.0 Windows Forms and Custom Controls in VB 2005


Pro .NET 2.0 Windows Forms and Custom Controls in VB 2005 is the VB 2005 version of the author's best-selling and highly-reviewed Pro .NET 2.0 Windows Forms and Custom Controls in C#. Renowned author Matthew MacDonald shows you VB 2005 programmers how to design flexible, user-friendly Windows interfaces. And you'll learn the best practices and design tips for coding these user interfaces.

Although this book is not a reference manual, it contains detailed discussions about user interface elements that you will use on a regular basis. You will learn to use .NET controls as well as to extend those .NET controls with your own custom controls.

Four years after the .NET Framework first hit the programming scene, smart client applications
still refuse to die. This is significant, because when .NET first appeared, many assumed it
would usher in a new world of Web-only programming. In fact, for a short time Microsoft’s own
Web site described the .NET Framework in a single sentence as a “platform for building Web
services and Web applications”—ignoring the Windows technology that made the company

Now that the dust has settled, it’s clear that Web and Windows applications aren’t locked
in the final rounds of a life-or-death battle. Instead, both technologies are flourishing. And not
only are both technologies gaining strength, they’re also stealing some of each other’s best
features. For example, the latest release of .NET gives Web developers rich controls like menus
and trees that were previously the exclusive domain of Windows coders (or Webheads who
weren’t afraid to write a mess of hard-core, client-side JavaScript). On the other hand, Windows
applications are gaining easy Web-based deployment, more-flexible layout options, and the
ability to display HTML. All of these innovations point to many productive years ahead for Web
and Windows developers alike.

If you’ve picked up this book, you’ve already decided to learn more about programming
Windows smart clients with .NET. Although Web and Windows applications each have their
strengths and weaknesses, only Windows applications allow you to break out of the confines of
the browser and take full advantage of the client computer. With Windows Forms, you can play
sound and video, display dynamic graphics, react to the user’s actions instantaneously, and
build sophisticated windowed interfaces.

In this book, you’ll learn how to use all of these techniques to design state-of-the-art application
interfaces. Best of all, you won’t just learn how to use the existing controls of the .NET
Framework—you’ll also learn everything you need to extend, enhance, and customize them.

Optical Fiber Fusion Splicing (Springer Series in Optical Sciences)
Optical Fiber Fusion Splicing (Springer Series in Optical Sciences)

Significant advances in optical fiber technology have created a need for an up-to-date book about optical fiber fusion splicing. Over the past 15 years, a variety of new optical fibers including rare-earth-doped fiber, dispersioncompensating fiber, dispersion-matched fiber pairs, and microstructured fiber have been introduced. These...

Algorithms, Data Structures, and Problem Solving With C++
Algorithms, Data Structures, and Problem Solving With C++
This book was designed for a second course in computer science, which has typically been known as CS-2 Data Structures. The content of CS-2 has been evolving over some time, but there is general agreement that topics such as structures, pointers, and data structures should be taught, along with an introduction to algorithm analysis and a general...

iPhoto 6: The Missing Manual

If you used iPhoto when it first came out, you'll remember the way it slowed to a crawl once you loaded it with about 2,000 photos. Compare that to this year's model: iPhoto 6 can handle as many as 250,000 images and still have the power to run a host of suped-up features. Its new software engine lets you make changes with a...

Telebomb: The Truth Behind The $500-Billion Telecom Bust And What The Industry Must Do To Recover
The notorious dot-com crash was heavily covered by the press, but a larger
revolution was going on at the same time in the telecommunications industry
and it received comparatively little attention. The telecommunications
revolution followed a similar trajectory to the dot-com boom and bust, but
it wasted more investor dollars
