Overview

Mastering Visual Studio .NET provides you, as an experienced programmer, with all the information needed to get the most out of the latest and greatest development tool from Microsoft®. It doesn't matter if you're an MFC, C++, STL, ATL, COM, Win32, Visual Basic, C#, HTML, XML, ASP.NET, database, web application, Web service, NT service, stand-alone client, or component programmer targeting Windows® or one of the Windows variants (i.e. Windows CE or the PocketPC) — this is the book that will help you master the toolkit.

Written by experienced developers and trainers John Flanders, Ian Griffiths, and Chris Sells, Mastering Visual Studio .NET begins with fundamental information about maximizing the power of Visual Studio .NET as it comes out of the box, including the following topics:

  • projects and solutions
  • files and the various file editors
  • debugging
  • web projects
  • database projects
  • setup projects

To experience the full spectrum of functionality and extensibility, Mastering Visual Studio .NET provides you with the practical depth and detail needed to best put these features to work. The second section of the book is about extending VS.NET to suit your specific needs:
  • integrating controls and components with VS.NET
  • the VS.NET automation object model
  • macros and add-ins
  • custom wizards
  • the Visual Studio Integration Program (VSIP)

If you're serious about using the VS.NET toolkit, you'll want a book of this magnitude close by. Mastering Visual Studio .NET will take you beyond what you'll read in the standard documentation by offering hints and recommendations that the authors and the community at large have found to be useful after many years of experience.

This book enables intermediate and advanced programmers the kind of depth that's really needed, such as advanced window functionality, macros, advanced debugging, and add-ins, etc. With this book, developers will learn the VS.NET development environment from top to bottom.

Meet the Author

Ian Griffiths is an independent consultant specializing in medical imaging applications and digital video. He also works as an instructor, teaching courses on .NET for DevelopMentor. Ian holds a degree in Computer Science from Cambridge University.

Although Jon spent the first few years of his professional life as an attorney, he quickly found chasing bits more interesting than chasing ambulances. After working with ASP and COM, he made the move to .NET. Jon is most at home spelunking, trying to figure out exactly how .NET (specifically ASP.NET and Visual Studio .NET) works. Deducing the details and disseminating that information to other developers is his passion.

Chris Sells in an independent consultant, speaker and author specializing in distributed applications in .NET and COM. He's written several books and is currently working on Windows Forms for C# and VB.NET Programmers and Mastering Visual Studio .NET. In his free time, Chris hosts various conferences, directs the Genghis source-available project, plays with Rotor and, in general, makes a pest of himself at Microsoft design reviews. More information about Chris, and his various projects, is available at http://www.sellsbrothers.com
