It is assumed that the readers will be familiar with the built-in controls available in ASP.NET. The book is aimed at experienced developers who are ready to extend the functionality of ASP.NET beyond its basic foundations, and create their own customized reusable controls.

The natural starting point for this book is anyone who has read Professional ASP. NET or a similar level of book, or anyone who has a good understanding of how ASP.NET works and wants to look into creating their own controls. This book is not suitable for the newcomer to ASP.NET.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
One of the things that maddened ASP developers was coping with pages that mixed code and content: tough to manage, easy to foul up. With ASP.NET, there's an alternative: server controls. These babies let you encapsulate complex user interface functionality in one line of code, calling separate code that reacts to events, works with data and input -- you name it.

ASP.NET doesn't just provide its own server controls: it encourages you to build your own, which all benefit from basic functionality you needn't reinvent. Server controls are powerful stuff -- and Professional ASP.NET Server Controls is the first book to focus entirely on them.

Wrox's author team first introduces ASP.NET's control-based architecture, the classes your controls will inherit from, and the interfaces they may need to implement. Next, you'll walk through rendering server controls (including ASP.NET's powerful new validation controls); event handling; managing state; templated controls and styles; controls that implement data binding; and design-time support. There's a full chapter on deployment (you can XCOPY, or add your control to the Global Assembly Cache); and finally, a start-to-finish case study. Goodbye, spaghetti code -- forever! (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. He served for nearly ten years as vice president of a New Jersey┬ľbased marketing company, where he supervised a wide range of graphics and web design projects. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies┬«, Second Edition.
