Overview

With C# Cookbook, 2nd Edition, you'll be able to learn and improve your mastery of both the C# language and the .NET platform. This updated bestseller has been completely revised to account for C# 2.0, the latest version of this popular object-oriented programming language. It also includes more than 100 new code solutions (over 300 overall) to common problems and tasks that you're sure to face as a C# programmer.

Nearly every solution, or "recipe," contains a complete, documented code sample showing you how to solve the specific problem, as well as a detailed discussion of how and why the underling technology works. This question-solution-discussion format is a proven teaching method, as any fan of O'Reilly's "Cookbook" series can attest to. In fact, no other source offers a learn-as-you-go format quite like this.

C# Cookbook, 2nd Edition is organized into 20 chapters, each of which focuses on a particular topic in creating C# solutions. Here are just some of what's covered:

  • Numeric data types
  • Strings and characters
  • Classes and structures
  • Generics
  • Exception handling
  • Delegates, events, and anonymous methods
  • Filesystem interactions
  • Web site access
  • XML usage (including XPath and XSLT)
  • Networking
  • Threading
  • Unsafe code

Best of all, you don't have to be an experienced C# or .NET developer to use C# Cookbook, 2nd Edition. You just have to be someone who wants to solve a problem now, without having to learn all the related theory first.

The "C# Cookbook "offers a definitive collection of solutions and examples for this new programming language. Recipes range from simple tasks to the more complex, and are organized with respect to the types of problems users need to solve as they progress in their experience as a C# programmer.

Meet the Author

Jay Hilyard has been developing applications for the Windows platform for over 15 years and for .NET for more than 7 of those. Jay has published multiple articles in MSDN Magazine and he currently works on the New Product Team at Newmarket International in Portsmouth, NH. When not immersed in .NET, Jay spends his time with his family and rooting for the Patriots.

Stephen Teilhet earned a degree in electrical engineering, but soon afterwards began to write software for the Windows platform. For the last 11 years, he's worked for several consulting firms on a wide range of projects, specializing in Visual Basic, Visual C++, MTS, COM, MSMQ, and SQL Server. He has been working with the .NET technologies since the pre-alpha version of the 1.0 .NET framework was being developed by Microsoft. Currently he works for Ounce Labs where he is working on enhancing their static security code analysis tool to find vulnerabilities in several languages including the .NET languages.

    COOKING WITH C#!!

    Are you an experienced C# or .NET developer? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Jay Hilyard and Stephen Teilhet, have done an outstanding job of writing a second edition of a book that was put together based on programming problems that the authors ran into when they were first learning C# as well as during their continued use of it. Hilyard and Teilhet, begin by focusing on the numeric and enumeration data types used in C# code. Then, the authors cover both the String and Char data types. Next, they cover a wide range of recipes from design patterns to converting a class to interoperating with COM. The authors then focus on the new generics capacity of C#, which allows you have code operate uniformly on values of different types. They continue by examining recipes that make use of collections. Then, the authors use two new features of C# to solve very different programming problems. Next, they show you how to implement exception handling in your application. The authors then explore recipes that use data types that fall under the System.Diagnostics namespace. They continue by showing you how delegates, events, and anonymous methods can be used in your applications. They also cover a very useful set of classes that are used to run regular expressions against strings. Then the authors show you how to implement certain data structures and algorithms that are not in the FCL. Next, they deal with filesystem interactions in four distinct ways. The authors show you ways to use the 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. Then, they cover accessing a web site and its content as well as programmatically determining web site configuration. Next, the authors explore some of the uses for XML. The authors then explore the connectivity options provided by the .NET Framework. They continue by exploring areas such as controlling access to types, encryption and decryption, random numbers, securely storing data, and using programmatic and declarative security. Then, the authors address the subject of using multiple threads of execution in a .NET program. Next, they discuss how C# allows you to step outside of the safe environment of managed code and write code that is considered unsafe by the .NET Framework. Finally, they help you how to determine locations of system resources, sending e-mail, and working with services. 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. More importantly, nearly every recipe contained in this book shows you how to solve a specific problem.
