    New Windows App Programmer

    Can someone suggest a great beginner book with sample projects for developing Windows Applications in VB. I have been developing web sites since asp and I am now creating websites with VS 2010 and asp.net 4 in VB. I would like to learn Win Apps with VS 2010 and VB. Any ideas?
    thanks

    If you've been developing ASP.NET websites, then you already have most (if not all) of the knowledge you need to develop a winform app - a beginners book would likely be a waste of your time.

    That said, Google is your friend! There should be plenty enough tutorials and examples to supply you with the information you'd need.

    If you've been doing Asp.net 4.0 for quite a while, you should be able to jump into WPF really easily.
    Currently using VS 2015 Enterprise on Win10 Enterprise x64.

    Hi,

    I agree with the previous posts made to answer your question but have a look at the thread below which I posted to earlier today. Follow the link in the last post and see if this book could be of any use. If you scroll down the link in Amazon then there are various other references to other books which may be of interest.

    http://www.vbdotnetforums.com/vs-net-general-discussion/53451-get-user-input-variables-match-set-values-no-matter-order-they-entered.html

    Good luck.

    Cheers,

    Ian
