Overview

This definitive guide, written by the leading software components expert, gives you the tools and techniques to develop great Windows applications using custom controls. You'll learn how to get more out of VBX controls, how to migrate VBXs to OCXs, and how to write component-style code that is tight, bullet-proof, and truly reusable. Windows 95 and Windows 32-bit programming in general has introduced the need for a new kind of custom control that will operate within the powerful 32-bit platform. But the transition from VBXs to OCXs takes great skill and practice. Cilwa's innovative solution is to build controls that can help you make the transition and, in some cases, serve double duty. This book is especially designed for all C/C++ programmers who want to perfect their skills in writing 16- and 32-bit custom controls VBXs and OCXs. Programmers who use Visual Basic will also find this book helpful because it shows how to build tools that will work with Visual C++, Borland C++, and Visual Basic.

With its new 32-bit platform, Microsoft has abandoned the VBX standard for OCX controls. Today's programmers will have to be skilled with both control types in order to create applications that will be sufficient for people who may or may not have upgraded to Win95. Cilwa shows readers the easy solution to this problem, telling how to move from the world of 16-bit programming to 32-bit, without suffering from the transition.
