This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create desktop applications using Windows Forms and the .NET Framework using Visual Basic.NET. Students should already have a working knowledge of VB.NET.
This course teaches students how to leverage the power of the .NET Framework to build desktop applications. Students learn how to build Windows Forms applications and use with a variety of controls to create sophisticated user interfaces. Students also learn how to use the BackgroundWorker to perform asynchronous operations.
Students also learn how to use ADO.NET to interact with databases and XML files. Students learn how Windows Forms uses data binding to display data in controls such as the DataGridView and Chart. Students will also learn how to leverage the power of web services by calling both SOAP services and RESTful APIs.
Other topics include: debugging techniques; using a .config file to control application configuration; building menus, toolbars and status bars; reading and writing files; interacting with the file system; and deploying desktop applications.
Comprehensive labs provide the students with extensive experience creating and deploying Windows Forms-based desktop applications.
This course provides thorough coverage of the use of Windows Forms to build desktop applications. Students requiring additional coverage of Windows Presentation Foundation, ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC or WCF should contact HOTT or refer to HOTT's complete course listing for additional training courses.
Students unfamiliar with the VB.NET language should take the 5-day Windows Forms Programming Using VB.NET class instead.
Prior experience with Visual Basic.NET is required.

The training session was excellent and I offer high praise for the instructor. Obviously he has great subject experience, but also is a great communicator, maintains good energy during the course, is down-to-earth, and has patience with students who are having questions and/or moments of difficulty with the lab work, etc. One could not ask for a better instructor.
