Visual Basic for Electronics Engineering Applications
The PC has long-time outgrown its function as a pure computer and has become an all-purpose machine. This book is targeted towards those people that want to control existing or self-built hardware from their computer. Using Visual Basic as Rapid Application Development tool we will take you on a journey to unlock the world beyond the connectors of the PC. After familiarising yourself with Visual Basic, its development environment and the toolset it offers, items such as serial communications, printer ports, bit-banging, protocol emulation, ISA, USB and Ethernet interfacing and the remote control of test-equipment over the GPIB bus, are covered in extent. Each topic is accompanied by clear, ready to run code, and where necessary, schematics are provided that will get your projects up to speed in no time. This book will show you advanced things like: using tools like Debug to find hardware addresses, setting up remote communication using TCP/IP and UDP sockets and even writing your own internet servers. Or how about connecting your own block of hardware over USB or Ethernet and controlling it from Visual Basic. Other things like internet-program communication, DDE and the new graphics interface of Windows XP are covered as well. All examples are ready to compile using Visual Basic 5.0, 6.0, NET or 2005. Extensive coverage is given on the differences between what could be called Visual Basic Classic and Visual basic .NET / 2005.
Application Development Using C and NET
The practical guide to C# .NET development for experienced programmers. Running case study covers the entire .NET development process. .NET attributes, collections, threading, security, versioning, remoting, and more.
Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic
A Volume in the Wiley-Interscience Series on Laboratory Automation. The complete, step-by-step guide to using Visual Basic(r) in a laboratory setting Visual Basic(r) is fast becoming the de facto laboratory programming language, yet existing books typically discuss applications that have nothing to do with science and engineering. This primer fills the gap in the field, showing professionals seeking to improve the productivity of their laboratories how to use Visual Basic(r) to automate laboratory processes. Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic(r) helps laboratory professionals decide when and if to use Visual Basic(r) and how to combine it with the many computing technologies used in modern laboratories such as RS-232 port communications, TCP/IP networking, and event-driven control, to name a few. With an emphasis on getting readers programming immediately, the book provides clear guidelines to the appropriate programming techniques as well as custom-developed software tools. Readers will learn how to build applications to control laboratory instruments, collect and process experimental data, create interactive graphical applications, and more. Boasting many working examples with the complete source code and backward compatibility to previous versions of Visual Basic(r), Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic(r) is an indispensable teaching tool for nonprogrammers and a useful reference for more experienced practitioners.

Starting Out With Visual Basic
For courses in Visual Basic Programming In Starting Out with Visual Basic, Tony Gaddis and Kip Irvine take a step-by-step approach, helping students understand the logic behind developing quality programs while introducing the Visual Basic language. Revised and fully updated throughout for Visual Basic 2015, the Seventh Edition is written in clear, easy-to-understand language, covering all the necessary introductory programming topics. Concise, practical, and real-world example programs not only help students learn to use the various controls, constructs, and features of Visual Basic, but also why and when to use them. The text is designed for students who have no prior programming background, but experienced students will also benefit from its depth of detail and the chapters covering databases, Web applications, and other advanced topics. Each chapter covers a major set of programming topics, introduces controls and GUI elements, and builds knowledge as the student progresses through the book. Also Available with MyProgrammingLab. MyProgrammingLab is an online learning system designed to engage students and improve results. MyProgrammingLab consists of a set of programming exercises correlated to the programming concepts in this book and improves the programming competence of beginning students who often struggle with the basic concepts of programming languages. For students, the system automatically detects errors in the logic and syntax of their code submissions and offers targeted hints that enable students to figure out what went wrong. For instructors, a comprehensive gradebook tracks correct and incorrect answers and stores the code inputted by students for review.

Visual Basic 2015 Unleashed
With Visual Basic 2015, the Visual Basic programming language has been extended with 16 new language features and syntactical constructs, plus the coding experience in Visual Studio 2015 adds 8 new great possibilities that help developers write code more quickly and efficiently at the same time. In the end, at least 11 new features have been added to the tooling in Visual Studio 2015 that are specific to Visual Basic code and apps. The combination of syntax, coding experience, and tooling dramatically enhances the development experience with Visual Basic 2015. More than just a language reference, this book teaches developers of all levels - from an early Visual Basic developer to one with a great deal of experience - the fundamentals of developing all types of applications in Visual Basic. The author clearly explains the Visual Basic through the use of practical examples, tips, and tricks. This book has been extended and integrated with the many new features in Visual Basic 2015.
