      'If you are just beginning to use WinForms, or even if you are already an experienced hand, you will find this book an antidote for confusion and a friendly companion on the road to writing modern applications.'--Alan Cooper, Father of Visual Basic

  Windows Forms Programming in Visual Basic .NET is the ultimate guide to using the Microsoft .NET forms package. Readers will learn how to build applications that take full advantage of both the rich user interface features of the Microsoft Windows operating system and the deployment features traditionally associated with HTML-based applications.

  Authors Chris Sells and Justin Gehtland draw upon their WinForms research and programming experience to go beyond the Windows Forms documentation to give you a clear picture of exactly how Visual Basic .NET programmers can use WinForms. Readers will gain an understanding of the rationale behind aspects of WinForms design and learn how to avoid or solve common problems. Throughout the book, detailed illustrations of WinForms user interface features and working code samples demonstrate best practices. All code has been tested with Visual Studio .NET 1.1 and is available at www.sellsbrothers.com, where readers will also find updates to the book.

  This book focuses on the topics developers need to know in order to build real-world applications, including:

  Form layout

Multiple top-level and non-rectangular windows

Classes outside the System.Windows.Forms namespace, including System.Drawing and System.Security

Custom drawing

Hosting and building controls

Design-time integration of controls and components

Data binding

Multithreaded user interfaces

Deploying WinForms controls and applications over the Web

Moving from Visual Basic 6

Well-written and easy to navigate, Windows Forms Programming in Visual Basic .NET is the tutorial for Windows programmers who are serious about mastering Windows Forms.
