Produktbeschreibung
Any Windows programmer using .NET will need to deal with Windows Forms, also known as WinForms. And use of .NET among Windows programmers continues to grow at a rapid pace. The bestselling book on WinForms 1.X, and by far the best reviewed one, was Chris Sells' book. Chris and his coauthor, Mike Weinhardt, have updated it completely for the just released WinForms 2.0. The first edition was so successful in fact that there will be much less competition for this new edition. It is almost twice as long, reflecting the increased complexity of WinForms 2.0 and the number of changes made. It is also much more timely, coming out just a few months after the release of the product; it should be the first book on WinForms 2.0 tested completely against the final release code, not just the Beta 2 code. Given the amount of changes in WinForms 2.0, people who have already purchased the first edition will want the new edition, not just programmers just starting with .NET. So all in all, this book should sell even better than the very successful first edition did. Product Description

"Some books are different-the content can't be Googled from the Internet, the authors have real-life experiences to share, the code can be used in real-world projects. This is one of those books."

-Neal Myrddin, Independent Developer



"Chris and Michael nail the soul of Windows Forms 2.0. This book provides an insightful view into the design of Windows Forms and the integration of new 2.0 features. It is just as applicable for the first-time Windows Forms programmer as the seasoned line of business developer. The 'What's New in 2.0' appendix is worth the price of admission alone."

-Mike Harsh, Windows Forms Program Manager, Microsoft, Inc.

"This book takes an amazingly broad and deep technology, and breaks it into manageable pieces that are easily consumed. You cannot survive building a complex WinForms application without this book."

-Ryan Dorrell, Chief Technology Officer, AgileThought

"Windows Forms 2.0 Programming offers something for every .NET developer. Experienced developers will appreciate the in-depth coverage of new 2.0 features, including the most comprehensive coverage of ClickOnce deployment, multithreading, and the new designer integration found anywhere. Developers new to Winforms programming will appreciate the coverage of the fundamentals all Winforms developers need to know. Whether you're an experienced WinForms developer or just beginning, you need this book."

-Fritz Onion, cofounder of Pluralsight, author of Essential ASP.NET, and ASP.NET MVP

"I don't want just a description of the WinForms widgets. I can get that online or from other books. What I want is a roadmap for pitfalls to avoid, and innovative solutions for common problems. That is where this book shines. All of us who found the first edition of this book to be an indispensible part of our reference library will appreciate this updated edition that describes WinForms 2.0."

-Johan Ericsson, Software Engineer, Agilent Technologies

"The books Chris Sells writes are always insightful and this newest addition is no different. This book in particular is for those who want to understand not just the flashy surface of Windows Forms 2.0, but also how it fits into the .NET environment. Readers will have this book at their desks, not stuck on their shelves, for quite a long time."

-Yoshimatsu Fumiaki, Software Engineer based in Tokyo Japan

"Chris and Mike have done an excellent job presenting the information you need to be successful with Windows Forms."

-Jessica Fosler, Dev Tech Lead, Microsoft

"This book is the 'must have' teaching and reference book for WinForms 2.0."

-Jim Rittenhouse, Senior Software Engineer, Siemens
