Publisher Comments:

This book represents the start of the second wave of .NET books: closely focused works that give you the insight of experienced developers about a single aspect of .NET programming. In .NET User Interfaces with VB .NET, you'll take a close look at all the ingredients you can use to design state-of-the-art application interfaces. You'll also delve into entirely new topics like custom control design and GDI+, the next-generation painting framework for Windows. You won't just learn about anchoring and docking, you'll work with complete examples that show document-view architectures, custom control layout engines, dockable windows, and hit testing with owner-drawn controls. You'll also learn how to design irregularly shaped forms, unshackle data binding, and build integrated help systems. You'll find that this book fills three roles. It provides the following: - An overview of how to design elegant user interfaces the average user can understand. This is addressed directly in the first chapter, and indirectly in tips and asides throughout the book. - A comprehensive examination of the user interface controls and classes in .NET. Although this book is not a reference, it contains an exhaustive tour of almost every user interface element you'll want to use, including providers, components, and custom controls. - A tutorial with best practices and design tips for coding user interfaces and integrating help. This represents overall focus, and the single most important aspect of the book. As a developer, you need to know more than how to add a control to a window. You also need to know how to create an entire user interface framework that's scalable, flexible, and reusable.

Synopsis:

This title has a tutorial with best practices and design tips for coding user interfaces and integrating help. Developers need to know more than how to add a control to a window. They also need to know how to create an entire user interface framework that's scalable, flexible, and reusable.

Synopsis:

User Interfaces in VB. NET: Windows Forms and Custom Controls goes beyond simple coverage of the Windows Forms and GDI+ namespaces by combining a careful treatment of the API with a detailed discussion of good user-interface design principles. After reading User Interfaces in VB. NET: Windows Forms and Custom Controls, you'll know how to design state-of-the-art application interfaces, program graphics, and much more.

This book contains the following: An overview of how to design elegant user interfaces the average user can understand A comprehensive examination of the user interface controls and classes in .NET Best practices and design tips for coding user interfaces and integrating help

Although this book isn't a reference, it does contain detailed discussions about every user interface element you'll use on a regular basis. But you won't just learn how to use .NET controlsyou'll learn how and why to extend them with your own custom controls. As a developer, you need to know more than how to add a control to a window. You also need to know how to create an entire user interface framework that's scalable, flexible, and reusable.
