As Microsoft's most popular programming language in the world, Visual Basic allows applications to be written with dramatically less code. Programmers can simply drag and drop controls, such as buttons and dialog boxes, and then define their appearance and behavior. With VB 2005, this language has finally made the leap to becoming a true object-oriented language, and is now able to take advantage of everything the .NET Framework has to offer. This unparalleled author team combines their years of expert-level experience to provide you with the complete VB.NET developer resource. You'll be equipped with everything you need to know to take your abilities to the next level when writing robust, useful applications.
