Overview

Completely updated for C# 3.0 and the .NET 3.5 platform, the new edition of this bestseller offers more than 250 code recipes to common and not-so-common problems that C# programmers face every day. Every recipe in the book has been reconsidered with more than a third of them rewritten to take advantage of new C# 3.0 features. If you prefer solutions you can use today to general C# language instruction, and quick answers to theory, this is your book.

C# 3.0 Cookbook offers a new chapter on LINQ (language integrated query), plus two expanded chapters for recipes for extension methods, lambda functions, object initializers, new synchronization primitives and more. The new edition is also complemented by a public wiki, which not only includes all of the C# 2.0 recipes from the previous edition unchanged by the release of C# 3.0, but invites you to suggest better ways to solve those tasks.

Here are some of topics covered:

  • LINQ
  • Numeric data types and Enumerations
  • Strings and characters
  • Classes and structures
  • Generics
  • Collections
  • Exception handling
  • Delegates, events, and lambda expressions
  • Filesystem interactions
  • Web site access
  • XML usage (including LINQ to XML, XPath and XSLT)
  • Networking
  • Threading
  • Data Structures & Algorithms
Each recipe in the book includes tested code that you can download from oreilly.com and reuse in your own applications, and each one includes a detailed discussion of how and why the underling technology works. You don't have to be an experienced C# or .NET developer to use C# 3.0 Cookbook. You just have to be someone who wants to solve a problem now, without having to learn all the related theory first.

Are you an experienced C# or .NET developer or just a novice user? If you are, then this book is for you. Authors Jay Hilyard and Stephen Teilhet, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that is designed for users of all levels, and provides solutions to problems that developers face every day as well as some that may come along less frequently. Hilyard and Teilhet, begin by covering Language Integrated Query (LINQ) and its usage with objects, ADO.NET, and XML. Next, the authors cover both String and Char data types. Then, they discuss recipes dealing with both class and structure data types. The authors also focus on the generics capacity in C#, which allows you to have code operate uniformly on values of different types. They continue by examining recipes that make use of collections. Next, the authors show you how to use two features of C# to solve very different programming problems. Then, they focus on the best ways to implement exception handling in your application. The authors also present recipes that use data types that fall under the System. They continue by showing you how delegates, events, and lambda expressions can be used in your applications. Next, the authors cover a useful set of classes that are employed to run regular expressions against strings. Then, they deal with file system interactions in four distinct ways. The authors also show you ways to use built-in assembly inspection system provided by the .NET Framework to determine what types, interfaces, and methods are implemented within an assembly and how to access them in a late-bound fashion. They continue by covering how to access a web site and its content as well as programmatically determining web site configuration. Next, the authors explore some of the uses for XML and how to program against it using LINQ to XML, the XmlReader/XmlWriter, and Xml-Document. Then, they explore the connectivity options provided by the .NET Framework and how to programmatically access network resources. The authors also explore areas such as controlling access to types, encryption and decryption, securely storing data, and using programmatic and declarative security. They continue by addressing the subject of using multiple threads of execution in a .NET program issues such as how to implement threading in your application protecting resources from and allowing safe concurrent access storing per-thread data and, how to use the synchronization primitives in .NET to write thread-safe code. Next, the authors discuss recipes for those random sorts of operations that developers run into over and over again, such as determining locations of system resources, sending e-mail, and working with services. Finally, the authors focus on the numeric and enumeration types and recipes on using enumerations that consist of bit flags. This most excellent book is laid out with respect to the types of problems you will solve as you progress through your life as a C# programmer. In other words, each recipe contained in this book is designed to help you quickly understand the problem, learn how to solve it, and find out any potential trade-offs or ramifications to help you solve your problems quickly, efficiently, and with minimal effort.
