Course description

In this course you will learn about important development topics that are not normally covered in a beginning Windows application programming course. Starting with an introduction to .NET interoperability, you will work through crucial topics such as saving objects to a stream using .NET Serialization, creating and displaying reports, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), working with multiple-document interface (MDI) applications, and drawing your own user interfaces using the System.Drawing namespace. You will dig deeper into working with the most complex built-in controls, the DataGridView control, how to interact with printers and how to print documents. You’ll also investigate several new Visual Studio 2008 features, including Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), new deployment features using ClickOnce, Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), and new support for Office 2007 products using Visual Studio Tools for Office. You are certain to find many topics here that will extend your knowledge, your capabilities, and your value as a developer.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.
