Overview

Sometimes you just need to solve a problem and get on with your work. To that end, Visual Basic 2008 Recipes is a compendium of practical solutions for busy VB .NET programmers. Create time for the more interesting aspects of your VB .NET project by solving common problems with the practical solutions and dozens of code examples in this book. Important .NET 3.5 technologies, such as Windows Presentation Framework (WPF) and Language Integrated Query (LINQ), are covered, and each chapter addresses a specific problem domain, including database access, multimedia, XML manipulation, networking, and security. The code is free to download, so you can use the recipes immediately.

  • Take advantage of quality, ready–made solutions to common Visual Basic programming problems
  • Avoid the tedium of having to reinvent the wheel—focus instead on the more interesting problems specific to your application
  • Learn from and be inspired by what the authors have done. Use their work as stepping stones to solve even more complex problems
