The practicing programmer's DEITEL® guide to C# and the powerful Microsoft .NET Framework
Written for programmers with a background in C++, Java, or other high-level languages, this book applies the Deitel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores Microsoft's C# language and the new .NET 2.0 in depth. The book is updated for Visual Studio® 2005 and C# 2.0, and presents C# concepts in the context of fully tested programs, complete with syntax shading, detailed line-by-line code descriptions, and program outputs. The book features 200+ C# applications with 16,000+ lines of proven C# code, as well as 300+ programming tips that will help you build robust applications.
Start with a concise introduction to C# fundamentals using an early classes and objects approach, then rapidly move on to more advanced topics, including multithreading, XML, ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0, Web services, network programming, and .NET remoting. Along the way you will enjoy the Deitels' classic treatment of object-oriented programming and a new, OOD/UML™ ATM case study, including a complete C# implementation. When you are finished, you will have everything you need to build next-generation Windows applications, Web applications, and Web services.
Dr. Harvey M. Deitel and Paul J. Deitel are the founders of Deitel & Associates, Inc., the internationally recognized programming languages content-creation and corporate-training organization. Together with their colleagues at Deitel & Associates, Inc., they have written many international best-selling programming languages textbooks that millions of people worldwide have used to master C, C++, Java™, C#, XML, Visual Basic®, Perl, Python, and Internet and Web programming.
The DEITEL® Developer Series is designed for practicing programmers. The series presents focused treatments of emerging technologies, including .NET, J2EE, Web services, and more.Pre-publication Reviewer Testimonials
"Excellent coverage of developing ASP.NET 2.0 applications, with plenty of sample code. The chapter on exception handling is one of, if not the best such chapters I have seen in the 50+ .NET related books I've read and reviewed. The chapter on Networking is one of the best I have seen."
--Peter Bromberg, Merrill Lynch, C# MVP
"A comprehensive introduction to XML, and one of the clearest tutorials on Web services I've read, with great examples. An excellent chapter on generics."
--Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology
"A superb job of clearly integrating the theory of relational databases and SQL with ADO.NET!"
--Harlan Brewer, University of Cincinnati
"Excellent introduction to .NET collections."
--José Antonio González Seco, Andalucia's Parlamient
"A beautiful presentation of threads."
--Pavel Tsekov, Caesar BSC
"The ATM OOD/UML case study is excellent! The implementation of the design developed in the early chapters gives the reader a fantastic model of a real world problem. You hit a home run with this one!"
--Catherine Wyman, Devry-Phoenix

Welcome to C# and the world of Windows, Internet and Web programming with Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET 2.0 platform! This book presents leading-edge computing technologies to software developers and IT professionals.
At Deitel & Associates, we write computer science textbooks for college students and professional books for software developers. We also teach this material in industry seminars at organizations worldwide.
This book was a joy to create. To start, we put the previous edition under the microscope:
All of this has been carefully scrutinized by a team of distinguished .NET industry developers, academic professionals and members of the Microsoft C# development team.
Who Should Read This Book
We have several C# publications, intended for different audiences.
C# for Programmers, 2/e, is part of the Deitel® Developer Series, intended for professional software developers who want a deep treatment of a new technology with minimal introductory material. The book emphasizes achieving program clarity through the proven techniques of structured programming, object-oriented programming (OOP) and event-driven programming. It continues with upper-level topics such as XML, ASP.NET 2.0, ADO.NET 2.0 and Web services. Unlike our How to Program Series college textbooks, the Deitel® Developer Series books do not include the extensive pedagogic features and ancillary support materials required for college courses.
C# for Programmers, 2/e presents many complete, working C# programs and depicts their inputs and outputs in actual screen shots of running programs. This is our signature "live-code" approach--we present concepts in the context of complete working programs. The book's source code is available free for download at www.deitel.com/books/csharpforprogrammers2/. We assume in our Chapter 1 "test-drive" instructions that you extract these examples to the C:\ folder on your computer. This will create an examples folder that contains subfolders for each chapter (e.g., ch01, ch02, etc.).
As you read this book, if you have questions, send an e-mail to email@example.com; we will respond promptly.

Features in C# for Programmers, 2/e
This new edition contains many new and enhanced features.
Updated for Visual Studio 2005, C# 2.0 and .NET 2.0
We updated the entire text to reflect Microsoft's latest release of Visual C# 2005. New items include:
New Interior Design
Working with the creative services team at Prentice Hall, we redesigned the interior styles for our Deitel Developer Series books. In response to reader requests, we now place the key terms and the index's page reference for each defining occurrence in bold italic text for easier reference. We emphasize on-screen components in the bold Helvetica font and emphasize C# program text in the Lucida font.
We syntax shade all the C# code, similar to the way most C# integrated-development environments and code editors syntax color code. This greatly improves code readability-- an especially important goal, given that this book contains 16,800+ lines of code. Our syntax-shading conventions are as follows:
comments appear in italic
keywords appear in bold, italic
errors and JSP scriptlet delimiters appear in bold, black
constants and literal values appear in bold, gray
all other code appears in plain, black
Extensive code highlighting makes it easy for readers to spot each program's featured code segments--we place light gray rectangles around the key code.
Early Classes and Objects Approach
We still introduce the basic object-technology concepts and terminology in Chapter 1. In the previous edition, we developed custom classes in Chapter 9, but in this edition, we start doing that in our new Chapter 4. Chapters 5-8 have been carefully rewritten from an "early classes and objects approach."
Carefully Tuned Treatment of Object-Oriented Programming in Chapters 9-11 We performed a high-precision upgrade of C# for Programmers, 2/e. This edition is clearer and more accessible--especially if you are new to object-oriented programming (OOP). We completely rewrote the OOP chapters, integrating an employee payroll class hierarchy case study and motivating interfaces with an accounts payable hierarchy.
We include many case studies, some spanning multiple sections and chapters:
