Building Applications and Components with Visual Basic .NET is the Visual Basic developer's guide to the .NET framework and object-oriented programming.

The authors introduce the basic architecture of the .NET Framework and explore Visual Basic .NET's new OOP features, the syntax required to use them, and the effect that syntax has on code behavior. Readers gain skills essential to creating well-designed applications and component libraries for the .NET Framework.

Among the topics explored in depth are:

  • Writing software for the .NET Framework
  • The Common Language Runtime (CLR)
  • The Framework Class Library (FCL)
  • Using Visual Basic's new object-oriented features
  • Programming with delegates, events, and exceptions
  • Understanding the difference between values and objects
  • Assembly deployment and versioning
  • COM and Visual Basic 6.0 interoperability
  • Building Applications and Components with Visual Basic .NET is the definitive guide to a quick and smooth transition to this new language, and an indispensable tool for becoming comfortable and productive with Visual Basic .NET.
