Dan Appleman's Win32 API Puzzle Book and Tutorial for Visual Basic Programmersby Dan Appleman
Synopses & Reviews
The key to accessing the power of every operating system is its application programming interface (API). Visual Basic can access only part of the Windows API without special help. To write the most powerful possible programs, VB programmers need to work with all of the API. The big problem for VB programmers in trying to do so is that all of the available documentation on the Windows API is written for C++ programmers. In other words, the directions for using the API is written in a language that VB programmers don't understand.
With a writing style that combines technical competence, humor, and a bit of attitude, Appleman proves once again in this long-awaited complement to his previous bestseller, Visual Basic Programmer's Guide to the Win32 API, that learning advanced technology can (and should) be fun.
The bestselling author of books about the Windows API for Visual Basic programmers presents this book divided into three parts with puzzles, solutions to the puzzles, and general tutorials that readers can refer to for help with the puzzles. The CD-ROM contains sample code for all puzzles, solutions and tutorials; VB 6.0 and 5.0 compatible source code; a 30-minute video by the author, and more.
