Overview

Master VB.NET step-by-step, through practical examples and a case study.

Using real-world examples and a detailed case study, this book helps you master VB.NET from the ground up—or rapidly migrate to VB.NET from earlier versions of Visual Basic. Dana L. Wyatt and Robert Oberg present a thorough introduction to VB.NET the language, the .NET Framework, and Visual Studio.NET. They examine VB.NET's basic coding constructs, thoroughly explore object-oriented design with VB.NET, and offer systematic guidance for building next-generation Windows applications with Windows Forms. Coverage includes:

  • Classes, inheritance, and other elements of VB.NET object-oriented programming
  • Windows Forms: form design, controls, events, menus, toolbars, and dialogs
  • Visual Basic.NET's key interactions with the .NET Framework
  • Major .NET classes: collections, files, ADO.NET database access, and multithreading
  • Core VB.NET language features: data types, operators, control structures, and more
  • Attributes, custom attributes, metadata, and reflection
  • Techniques for building reusable .NET components
