Windows Forms 2.0 Programming


Windows Forms 2.0 Programming Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the eBook version of the printed book.

""Windows Forms 2.0 Programming"" is the successor to the highly praised "Windows Forms Programming in C#." This edition has been significantly updated to amalgamate the sheer mass of new and improved support that is encompassed by Windows Forms 2.0, the .NET Framework 2.0, and Visual Studio 2005. This is the one book developers need in order to learn how to build and deploy leading-edge Windows Forms 2.0 applications.

Readers will gain a deep understanding from Sells and Weinhardt's practical, well-balanced approach to the subject and clear code samples.

- Windows Forms 2.0 fundamentals, including forms, dialogs, data validation, help, controls, components, and rendering

- Static and dynamic layout, snap lines, HTML-style flow and table layout, automatic resizing, and automatic cross-DPI scaling

- Office 2003-style tool strip control coverage, including dynamic layout and custom rendering

- Design-time integration with the Visual Studio 2005 Properties Window and Smart Tags

- Resource management, strongly typed resources, and internationalization considerations

- Strongly typed application and user settings

- SDI, MDI, Single Instancing, Multiple-Instance SDI, Single-Instance MDI, database-centric, and document-centric applications

- Databinding data-source management, drag-and-drop databinding, the BindingSource, the BindingNavigator, and applied databinding

- Events, delegates, multithreaded UIs, long-running operations, simplified multithreading with the BackgroundWorker, and asynchronous web service calls

- ClickOnce application development publishing, shell integration, and partial trust security

- Best practices for developers transitioning from Windows Forms 1.0 and MFC

He’s written several books, including Programming Windows Presentation Foundation (O’Reilly), Windows Forms Programming in C# (Addison-Wesley), and ATL Internals (Addison-Wesley). In his free time, Chris hosts various conferences and makes a pest of himself on Microsoft internal product team discussion lists.

Michael Weinhardt is a programmer/writer at Microsoft, working on the Windows Client SDK.

Michael is sure that his parents attribute his fascination in technology to their purchase of an Amiga 1000 in the mid-80s. They would be right.
