For courses in C# Programming.This book uses one of the project building options of Visual Studio.NET - namely Windows Application development. The book includes a brief introduction to language features, but concentrates on the Windows development environment. This includes code development, the design environment, controls, events, properties and a whole lot more. It takes the programmer from simple applications that get them writing full-fledged Windows projects to professional applications that create bar and pie charts for the Windows environment.
