Custom Controls and Asynchronous Programming with Visual Basic 2008

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.

Overview

Developers often need to create applications that use controls that are configurable and are able to respond to and handle more than one task at a time. This course looks at how Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5 allow for the creation of custom controls and the use of asynchronous programming techniques to handle multiple processes. Specific topics covered include composite controls, customization and inheritance, using the BackgroundWorker component, and asynchronous operations, methods, and threads in .NET Windows Forms.
This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Technology Specialist (TS): Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development 70-505. Passing this exam will earn the learner the MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Applications certification.
