Overview

When it was first introduced, Visual Basic simplified development for Windows programmers. Now Microsoft has extended the same ease of use to Internet programmers. Complicated protocols and binary data transfers are now as easy as placing a control on your Visual Basic form. Web pages come alive with VBScript and ActiveX controls. Powerful, secure programs handle FTP, HTTP, MAPI, and asynchronous transfers without a hitch. In short, what was once a field dominated by C++ and Java programmers is now open to Visual Basic programmers everywhere.

Internet Programming With Visual Basic® 5 is a complete introduction to the Internet capabilities of Visual Basic. From the new Internet ActiveX controls, to handling common Internet protocols, to a complete introduction to VBScript -- everything is here to quickly get you up to speed. You�ll learn to create ActiveX controls of your own and add methods, events, and properties to existing controls. You'll also learn to create Internet-aware databases with Web-based front ends. All the code covered in the book is on the CD-ROM -- ready to run on your PC or on your Internet server.
