This book is the VB 2005 version of the author's best-selling and highly-praised Pro .NET 2.0 Windows Forms and Custom Controls in C#. The author shows Visual Basic 2005 programmers how to design flexible, user-friendly Windows interfaces, using .NET. They will learn to use the full range of .NET controls, as well as extend them with custom controls. From best practices to user interface design tips, to a comprehensive examination of .NET user interface controls, this is a lively and practical work. Although this book is more than a reference manual, it includes detailed discussion of user interface elements that programmers will use on a regular basis.

Provides a solid foundation in advanced windows forms and should be on every serious programmers reading list. Topics are focused the reader is not required to wade through fluff to get the information. This is not a 'code snippet' book. It provides clear information to gain a level of understanding that is applicable immediately. It took me longer to read this book than normal. I found myself reading, re-reading and then immediately applying to my current projects. This was especially true of Part 2: Custom Controls in the book. I found myself seriously considering returning to scope and restarting my project. In summary, the author writes very well and each topic is covered with enough detail that even the most experienced programmer will gain from reading the book.
