How to design a Windows Forms application

Chapter 2 shows you how to use Visual Studio 2010 to design a Windows form that displays the discount amount and final total for an invoice, based on user input and a fixed discount rate. It also tells you how to set the Visual Studio options so it's easier to create a new project.

Chapter 3

Chapter 3 teaches you how to enter the Visual Basic code for the Windows form in chapter 2 so the interface works the way you want it to. And it gets you started with practical debugging techniques that you'll use all the time.

What’s in All Book Files?

This file contains (1) the source code and data for the applications that are presented in the book and (2) the starting source code and data for all of the exercises in the book. It's an executable (.EXE) file, so when you run it, it will automatically unzip all the files into their proper folder structure. Appendix A in the book describes how to install and use these files in more detail.

What if you can't download the self-extracting ZIP file?

If the security on your system prevents you from downloading .EXE files, you can download a standard ZIP file containing the applications and exercises. Once you've done that, you can follow these steps to get your system set up for doing the exercises:

  1. Unzip the file into a folder named C:\Murach\VB 2010.
  2. In that folder, find the exercise_starts_setup.bat file.
  3. Double-click on the .bat file to run it. It will store the exercise files in the proper folders so you can follow the exercise instructions in the book.
