This book answers the primary questions that VB.NET developers need answered as they start to develop code. Educates current VB6 programmers and new VB.NET programmers on the core .NET namespaces and their uses. As developers create .NET applications, this book will help them comprehend the capabilities of the existing namespaces in .NET and how to leverage them by extension or reference to create applications ranging from simple to complex. Visual Basic Programmer's Guide to the .NET Framework Class Library covers how to delineate and define the pieces of .NET; how and why .NET was conceived and what this means to VB6/Windows DNA developers; how to execute Windows programming using the .NET namespaces; instructs how to make architecture decisions when using .NET namespaces; provides details about the construction of Web Services and how they communicate with each other; call-outs and highlighted sections illustrate concepts by relating previous VB6/Windows DNA best practices with the new .NET approach.
