Description

Microsoft's new .NET version of Visual Basic is its most radical revamping of the product since it was first released. Even if you know your way around VB6, the latest version presents special challenges. There are some new ways of doing things, some new things to do, and a new environment in which to work. With a few tips and tricks from expert Matt Tagliaferri, however, you'll be well on your way to VB.NET mastery.
Visual Basic .NET Codemaster's Library offers a collection of 99 clear, concise programming examples, which show you how to use VB.NET and Visual Studio .NET to make the most of functionality available for the first time in the .NET Framework. You can begin with any topic and read only the ones that matter to you.
Each topic provides a solution that you can incorporate into your own work, in areas ranging from garbage collection to database transactions, from memory management to XML Web Services. You even get coverage of mixing C# and VB.NET in the same application. Taken together, the tips in this book help you make the transition to thinking and working effectively within the object-oriented world of .NET.
