For the current edition of this book, please see Murach's Visual Basic 2008 (ISBN 9781890774455).
Visual Basic 2005 is designed for productivity...and so is this new addition to Murach's bestselling VB series. It moves at a professional pace to teach you how to develop Windows Forms applications using all the time-saving new features in Visual Basic 2005 and Visual Studio 2005.
That means you'll learn how to:
· create database applications using the new data sources feature and new data controls that are now layered on top of ADO.NET (database processing is the function that's changed most dramatically in this release of Visual Basic)
· use new object-oriented features like generics, My objects, partial classes, and class diagrams that save you time on everyday functions
· take advantage of new Visual Studio features like code snippets, Auto Correction, and ClickOnce deployment that simplify the tasks of creating, testing, debugging, and deploying applications
But if you're new to VB.NET, you'll also gain the core skills that haven't changed. So you'll learn how to validate data...handle numeric, date, and string data...do repetitive processing using arrays and collections...handle exceptions in a structured way...work with text, binary, and XML files...access data with ADO.NET...and make practical use of OOP features like inheritance and interfaces. What's more, these classic skills are seamlessly integrated with what's new, just as you'll mix new and unchanged features in your own applications.
But that's not all! Check out the extended table of contents and index in Search Inside the Book to see all that this book covers. By the end, you'll be producing Windows database applications at a professional level. And you'll be ready to master ASP.NET 2.0 web programming (please see Murach's ASP.NET 2.0 Web Programming with VB 2005; it takes up where this book leaves off).

During the last 30 years, many customers have asked me how it is that a small publisher in Fresno can make the best programming books. The short answer is that no other publisher works the way we do.
Instead of using freelance writers who get no training, we use a small staff of programmers who are trained in our proven writing and teaching methods. Instead of publishing 40+ books each year, we focus on just a few. Instead of showing pieces of code, we provide complete applications that have been checked and re-checked for accuracy. And instead of rushing books to market, we refuse to let schedule or budget interfere with quality. As I see it, that’s the only way to make sure that every book we publish is the best one on its subject.
That’s why I say that no other book will teach you so much, so fast, or so thoroughly as ours will. Try it and see for yourself!About the Author:
Anne Boehm has over 20 years of experience as an enterprise programmer. For the past 7 years, she’s specialized in Visual Basic and .NET programming, and she’s authored or co-authored books on VB.NET, ADO.NET, and ASP.NET.
