Windows Forms 2.0 Programming Summary

Windows Forms 2.0 Programming by Chris Sells

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.
