There have been alot of useful changes from C 1. I just wish he would rewrite the first book with the 2. One person found this helpful. A Very short but objective review: If you are totally new to Windows forms, this book is a great option. Otherwise, there are 3 chapters that wotrh while, speccialy the chapter about custom controls.
To be honest, I was expecting a lot more from this book, but anyway, its still a good one. Great Book from a great author. Teaches you the nitty gritty - good service from supplier too as this was a used book.
This is hands down the most clearly-written explanation of programing windows forms using C that I have read or seen on the market. Petzold has an easy and engaging writing style. This is a great book for someone just sitting down to Visual Studio to begin learning C programming. His examples and walkthroughs produce useful and functioning examples of the most common aspects of Win Form programming.
My only complaint is that he can only dedicate a chapter to some pretty key concepts, like data-binding. My interest is piqued, and then the chapter ends and we move on to new concepts. This is a small complaint because what he does provide is complete and enlightening. It provides a solid foundation to build off of create your own experiments. I have worked through many programming books over the years or should I say attempted to.
The Step-by-Step guides always leave me wanting more answers about how things work, in addition to how to make it work, and seem to be pretty superficial.
This book has left me anxious to read more of Petzold's work. He has skillfully broken through my thick head and can do the same for you. Programming Microsoft Windows Forms is a great introduction into windows forms. It takes the magic out of windows programming by showing how to do everything from scratch, which, with windows forms, turns out to be pretty easy. Windows forms makes a lot of the tasks that used to be tedious easy and Petzold as always is very easy to follow.
I didn't know any C before I started reading this book and already feel comfortable with it. One thing to note is that this book covers.
NET 3. The Microsoft. NET program continues to expand with each release of Windows. In the. NET Framework 2. These enable the programmer to implement Windows applications that are both powerful and sharp looking with considerably less effort than before.
This book is somewhat of a quick introduction to writing such applications taking advantage of the new features. The author's previous book 'Programming Microsoft Windows with C ' is about three times as long as this one and is basically written using a somewhat lower level of coding as was required before the new enhancements.
It may well be that you want to purchase that book as a second volume to this one. This book uses Microsoft's C programming language for its demonstrations. There is no CD published with the book, instead a web site is maintained with code samples, updates, and a list of known errors. This book is a rather 'quick and dirty' introduction to Windows Forms, it is an excellent introduction to getting something going.
By the time the reader gets through the two real applications in the back of the book he should be ready to tackle the kinds of things for which Windows Forms was created. A major criticism I have seen of this book went as follows: "Unfortunately any forms which are built with code cannot then be manipulated with the GUI tools which defeats the intention of the makers of Visual Studio as a Rapid Application Developement RAD tool.
But form code that you write DOES show up in your designer. VStudio populates Form1. But if you add legitimate code to Form1.
Go ahead and try it as I just did again to make sure : Make a simple form and drag on 2 buttons; then go to the automated code in Form1. Maybe the reviewer had some legitimate criticisms but expressed them poorly, but as it stands, they are quite misleading. I for one am looking for getting greater depth in learning some controls and event handling, I think this book might take the cake although I wish I knew if getting the authors older book would be better??
