Developing Microsoft .NET Applications for Windows (Visual C# .NET)

5 Days

Description

This five-day, instructor-led course provides students with the skills required to build Microsoft® Windows® Forms applications by using the Microsoft .NET Framework. This course is a part of the Microsoft Visual C# .NET curriculum and is intended to provide C# programmers with the skills required to create Windows Forms applications by using the .NET Framework. The course will cover the major topics for Windows client application programming on the .NET Framework. These topics include: Windows Forms, GDI+, simple data access, interoperating with unmanaged code, threading and asynchronous programming issues, simple remoting, Web access, Web Services consumption, debugging, security, and deployment issues for desktop applications.

This course is intended for the intermediate programmer who is responsible for designing and building Windows-based applications with the .NET Framework. It is designed for developers who have C# development skills. Students are required to have the following skills:

  • Experience with a .NET language such as Visual C# .NET or Microsoft Visual C++® .NET
  • Experience developing basic applications with MFC and/or Microsoft Visual Basic® 6.0

Typically, these individuals perform the following key activities:

  • Help create functional specifications.
  • Design and develop user interfaces.
  • Create and test prototypes.
  • Write Windows Forms applications.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Create and populate Windows Forms.
  • Organize controls on Windows Forms.
  • Create menus in a Windows Forms application.
  • Add code to form and control event procedures in a Windows Forms application.
  • Create Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications.
  • Use dialog boxes in Windows Forms applications.
  • Validate user input in a Windows Forms application.
  • Create and use user controls in a Windows Forms application.
  • Create licenses for controls.
  • Bind Windows Forms applications to various data sources by using Microsoft ADO.NET.
  • Consume XML Web services from Windows Forms applications.
  • Use .NET and COM components in a Windows Forms application.
  • Call Microsoft Win32® APIs from a Windows Forms application.
  • Print documents in a Windows Forms application.
  • Make asynchronous calls to methods from a Windows Forms application.
  • Debug a Windows Forms application.
  • Incorporate accessibility features in a Windows Forms application.
  • Localize a Windows Forms application.
  • Add support for Help to localize a Windows Forms application.
  • Create Help files in a Windows Forms application.
  • Deploy a Windows Forms application.
  • Implement code access and role-based security in a Windows Forms application.
  • Add deployment flexibility to applications by using shared assemblies.
