The Standard Edition of Visual Basic is intended for the individual user. Companies that develop Visual Basic applications generally purchase Visual Basic as part of a package deal that Microsoft calls Visual Studio. When purchased this way, you get access not only to Visual Basic but also to the other languages and tools that make up Visual Studio. Because the focus of this book is on Visual Basic Express, from this point on in the book I use the terms Visual Basic and Visual Basic Express to refer to Visual Basic Express, unless otherwise specifically stated.
Visual Basic Express supports a large number of new features not found in Visual Basic Express. These features include things like new support for working with databases and a range of new language features and capabilities. Some of the more notable improvements to Visual Basic Express are outlined in the sections that follow, many of which will be demonstrated as you make your way through this book. This single-user database can be used to create Windows applications that store and manage data locally on the computer where your application runs.
LINQ provides data query capabilities allowing you to submit data queries and retrieve database data. Another new Visual Basic Express capability is the ability to specify the version of the. NET Framework that an application is designed to work with through a process referred to as multi-targeting. With multi-targeting, you can specify whether your Visual Basic Express application will work with. NET 2. By default, all new applications created with Visual Basic Express are set to work with.
If you need to develop applications that must be run on computers running an earlier version of the. NET Framework, you can do so by specifying a particular version of. When you select a particular version of. NET, Visual Basic Express automatically adjusts the list of controls displayed in its IDE, providing access only to those controls that are supported by the targeted version of.
More information about multi-targeting is provided later in this chapter. IntelliSense is an application feature that assists in the formulation of code statements and keywords.
In Visual Basic Express, IntelliSense assisted programmers in formulating keyword and code statements. IntelliSense Everywhere now provides filtering support. By default it displays only the most commonly used set of possible matching options. However, it allows you to view every possible option with the click of the mouse. IntelliSense Everywhere can also make lists transparent, so that you do not lose sight of the code statements that they might overlap.
IntelliSense Everywhere also now provides access to code snippets, which assist you in formulating code statements by adding template statements to your applications that you can then modify to fit your particular situation. Thanks to improvements made to. NET 3. A new framework that supports the development of Windows applications that integrate audio, video, and graphics. A new messaging system that facilitates the development of Windows applications that communicate with one another locally or across a network. Supports the development of Windows applications using transaction-based workflows, allowing incomplete transactions to be rolled back.
These new language features are listed in Table 1.

T ABLE 1. You will learn more about a number of these language features as you make your way through this book. ClickOnce deployment is a new feature that lets you create deployable Windows applications and now supports the distribution of the WPF Web Browser Application, which, since they execute within a web browser, require special deployment and security considerations. It allows you to specify whether your application, once installed, appears on the Start menu and lets you specify application prerequisites for your applications. When your application installer executes, it will automatically verify the presence of these prerequisites and if they are not found, it will download them from Microsoft.
A power pack is an add-in collection of controls, components, and tools that provide Visual Basic with new capabilities and features. Facilitates the porting over of Visual Basic 6.

A graphical control that lets you draw rectangles on containers and forms when designing application layout as opposed to programmatically generating them using graphic objects, brushes, and pens.
Displays rows of data in a scrollable container on top of Windows forms. Visual Basic Express is just one member of a family of Visual Studio Express programming languages.
A listing of other Visual Studio Express programming languages include:. A Windows program development language aimed at more experienced programmers with a need for greater control. Microsoft first introduced Visual C with the initial release of Visual Studio. NET Framework. It provides greater program control and more horsepower than other Express languages. As a result, it is the preferred language of power-programmers.
All of the various Visual Studio programming languages, whether Express or full-featured versions, are designed to work with the Microsoft. Microsoft created the. NET Framework to provide a multilanguage application development environment capable of supporting the creation of applications and services for Windows, the web, and mobile devices. Thanks to the multilanguage development environment provided by the. NET can involve multiple languages. For example, an application might include code written in both Visual Basic and another Visual Studio programming language such as C.
This allows companies to break application development projects into parts and to assign the various parts to programmers who are using different programming languages based on their particular areas of expertise or upon the strengths and weaknesses of a particular programming language. NET Framework is at the core of the Windows application development environment. Therefore, a basic understanding of. NET is a Microsoft framework that has been designed from the ground up to support integrated desktop, local area network, and Internet-based applications.
Before the introduction of. Using COM, Windows programmers were able to gain access to numerous system resources. Before the arrival of. Things would get complicated when programmers finished developing their applications and were ready to deploy them. To help make this task easier to manage, Microsoft gave Visual Basic the ability to create a deployment package that automatically collected all the DLLs required by a given application.
Although this made things easier on the programmer, it also made for some very large deployment packages.

In most cases, even the smallest Visual Basic deployment package would easily grow to be 30 to 40 MB in size. Unfortunately, package deployment size was not the only DLL problem that programmers had to contend with. This situation was so common and difficult to deal with that programmers referred to it as DLL Hell. Because DLL files are not needed to develop Windows applications, deployment packages are now a lot smaller.
Now, instead of worrying about what version of DLL files users have installed on their computers, programmers need only to make sure that users have the appropriate version of the. NET Framework installed. NET Framework is a collection of programming services that support application development and execution on Windows operating systems, the Internet, and mobile devices such as PDAs.
NET Framework acts as an interface between the operating system and your applications. As you can see, it enables applications to be developed using any combination of. NET-supported programming languages. It is responsible for translating the code created using these programming languages into a format that can be executed on the intended execution platform, whether it is a PC, web server, or a Pocket PC device.
NET Framework enables the development of multi-language applications on different execution environments. NET Framework 2. As Figure 1. NET Framework is made up of two primary components. These are:. Together, these two components provide everything needed to support the execution of your Visual Basic applications.
Their specific function is explained in the sections that follow. NET class library is made up of an enormous amount of prewritten code that is available to any Visual Studio programming language. The class libraries are used to define objects within applications. A class is a collection of code representing a programming object, such as a form, a button, or a text box. When you create a new form or add a control to a form when building an application interface, you are instantiating new objects based on predefined classes stored in the.
NET class library. NET class library contains the code required to create forms, buttons, and other Visual Basic controls. For example, to create a new form within a Visual Basic application, you would call upon a predefined class that already had everything defined within it to create the new form.
This saves you from having to write all the underlying low-level code yourself. If you then dragged and dropped a Button control onto the form, the. NET class library would automatically supply your application with all the underlying code, defining how the button looks and how your application can interact with it. The CLR provides the. NET Framework with a collection of services that facilitate application execution. Scott Meyers. C Pocket Reference. Peter Prinz. C Programming in Easy Steps. Mike McGrath. Stephen R.
