A fast-paced example-driven tutorial to building custom controls using Visual C# 2005 Express Edition and .NET 2.0. If you want to build custom controls with C# but you don't know where to start, or you are intimidated by the huge amount of information that needs to be absorbed, then this book is for you. This friendly tutorial is based on numerous examples with real-world applicability, and includes a case study featuring the development of a fully functional PieChart control. Showing you how to use the free Visual C# 2005 Express Edition environment to develop your controls, Building Custom Controls with Visual C# 2005 will teach you how to create professional, reusable custom controls for your desktop applications in no time. This book has been written with the intermediate C# developer in mind. Assuming a working knowledge of C#, the book teaches you how to implement custom controls using Visual C# 2005 Express Edition and all other versions of Visual C#, and GDI+ with .NET 2.0 The book covers: . Understand the basics of custom controls . Use GDI+ to draw your own controls . Implement double buffering to speed up your forms . Add printing functionality to your custom controls . Handle the mouse events to improve the user experience . Offer design-time support for programmers using your control . Design intuitive interfaces for your users
IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS, a deluge of .NET books has hit store shelves, each one eager to explain the new programming philosophy of the .NET world. In the excitement, many of these books have left out the tricks and insights needed to really master .NET programming. Part of the problem is that no single work can cover the entire .NET platform-a sprawling, ambitious framework that revolutionizes everything from Internet applications to data access technology. Many .NET books provide a good overview of essential concepts, but they can't deal with the subtleties needed for all types of development. This book represents the start of the second wave of .NET books: closely focused works that give you the insight of experienced developers about a single aspect of .NET programming. User Interfaces in VB .NET: Windows Forms and Custom Controls takes a close look at all the ingredients you can use to design state-of-the-art application interfaces. It also delves into entirely new topics like custom-control design and GDI+, the next -generation painting framework for Wmdows. You won't just learn about anchoring and docking, you'll work with examples that show document view architecture, custom -control layout engines, dockable windows, and hit testing with owner-drawn controls. You also learn how to design irregularly shaped forms, unshackle data binding, and build an integrated help system.
The book is aimed at a business applications audience, and presents designs and techniques useful in that environment. The provided information about the semantics of GDI+ ('Graphics Device Interface') is language agnostic, and the examples are written in C#. A good working knowledge of C# syntax and of the .NET Framework is assumed.

This Wrox Blox presents WPF along with the Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), showing developers how to customize existing user interface controls such as the Button, Progress Bar, CheckBox, Radio Button, and Label along with creating two new custom controls. The Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) released with the .NET 3.0 SDK provides a rich foundation for developing and customizing user interfaces. Unlike existing user interface development tools like GDI and GDI+, WPF is entirely vector-based, offering the developer enhanced two-dimensional and even three-dimensional rendering in the presentation layer. The author customizes these existing controls using XAML to:* Create control templates to define their appearance and behaviors.* Create two new custom controls, one derived from System.Windows.UserControl and the second from System.Windows.Control.* Illustrate the interoperability of WPF content in Windows Forms and Win32 applications.* Create the code samples using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 with extensions for .NET 3.0 and the .NET 3.0 SDK. These code samples contain four projects: A C# WPF control library that contains the control templates and a User Control containing the customized Windows controls and the two new custom controls; a C# WPF application to host the WPF User Control; a C# Windows Forms application to host the WPF User Control; and a C++ Win32 application to host the WPF User Control.
