Developing Desktop Applications with Visual Studio 2012, VB.NET and SQL Server 2012

What did you like the most about the training?:

I appreciated Fulvio's wide breadth of knowledge. Not only was he familiar with the course content, but he also knew of constructs in languages we were familiar with to make examples more meaningful to us. During intervals he shared his knowledge of technologies and solutions outside the training scope to provide insights into other solutions we could use in future (and future training).

Customizing Windows Forms and Controls

This unit explains how to develop custom Microsoft Windows Forms and controls. Students will learn how to develop user controls, use GDI+ operations, and create new controls that inherit from the Control class. In addition, it demonstrates how to create a nonrectangular Windows Form and how to add features such as attributes and Toolbox bitmaps to controls.

After completing this unit, students will be able to:

  • Explain the methods of authoring controls for Windows Forms
  • Draw a user interface by using GDI+.
  • Create a control that inherits from an existing control.
  • Create a nonrectangular Windows Form.
  • Create a custom user control.

Performing Asynchronous Tasks by Using Multithreaded Techniques

This unit demonstrates how to create Microsoft Windows Forms applications that can run tasks in the background. It explains how to make use of the asynchronous methods and other features of components that support the Asynchronous Pattern for Components. Students will also learn how to use the classes in the System.Threading namespace to run one or more tasks in the background by using multiple threads in an application.

After completing this unit, students will be able to:

  • Explain the concepts and processes that are involved in performing asynchronous programming.
  • Load a bitmap into a Windows Forms application asynchronously.
  • Perform multiple simultaneous calculations on a form by using multithreading.
