Special VSLive NYC Meeting: Billy Hollis on Advanced Windows Forms Techniques




Subject:  The capabilities built into .NET allow Windows Forms to easily perform functions that are difficult or impossible in VB6. This session covers many of those capabilities, including drawing to window surfaces using GDI+, inheritance of forms and controls, Extender-Provider controls, and advanced capabilities of the controls in Windows Forms.

This session is being presented on-site at VSLive exclusively for the NYC .NET Developers Group

All members are invited to attend VSLive's "Midnight Madness," (a free-form Q&A geek-out with lots of giveaways) free of charge, right after the meeting!


Speaker:  Billy Hollis
