Business is Changing!

Which Language?

  • A recent 2004 study conducted by Forrester indicates that preference for .NET development is only getting stronger.

  • According to the study, 56% of developers planned to use .NET to perform a majority of their development work, compared to 44% for Java.

Teaching the Basics?

What’s Next? Visual Studio 2005

  • A flexible development tool for business application developers building Windows, Web, Office, Database or Mobile applications.

  • The release date is November 7, 2005





Tools Drive The Phenomenon

Big Iron Rules

Dropping .NET

  • Visual Studio 2005, the ".NET" aspect has been dropped from the product name, to reflect the fact that modern versions of Windows (notably Windows XP and Windows Server 2003) are built entirely on the now well-established .NET software framework

  • The old, pre-.NET days are gone.

So What’s Your Sign

  • VB (#1 Language)

  • C# (Gaining Popularity)

  • C++ (Losing Popularity)

  • J# (Not Popular)

  • ASP 2.0 (Web Forms)

  • ADO 2.0 (Databases)

  • Visual Studio Tools

  • Mobile Applications

Expanding Visual Studio

Significant Changes

  • Easier ADO and Handheld Deployment

  • Enhancements to class libraries & the IDE with new tools

  • SQL Server Yukon Support

  • “Click Once” Technology Deployment

  • Microsoft Office Tools

Easier Design with Snap Lines

Snap lines can align controls with the edges of other controls

Masked Textboxes

Edit and Continue are BACK!

  • Visual Basic 6 had the edit and continue feature but early versions of VS left it out but we can rejoice—it's back!

  • In Visual Basic 2005, you can make changes to your code during debugging, back up the code instruction pointer if you want, and re-execute lines of code with the modified content.

  • While in Break mode, you can modify code or fix bugs; almost any code modification will work.

Break Point


Click Once

  • ClickOnce installer puts the complexities of preparation for distribution and deployment in the hands of the development environment, where it belongs.

  • Support for running applications offline

  • Rolling back to previous versions of an application

  • Listing an application in the Windows Start menu, as well as the Remove Programs catalog within the Control Panel.

New MenuStrip Control

ClickOnce Publishing

Right-click on the project in the Solution Explorer

window and select Publish

Code Snippets

Right-click within the Visual Basic code editor, and select a task that inserts the prewritten code into your source file for you


Use the Tab key to navigate among the placeholders in the snippet.

Splash Screens Made Easy

Temporary Projects

  • How many times have you found out that you have WindowsApplication53 already on your hard drive? "Really?", you say to yourself, "How did that happen?“

  • Visual Studio .NET 2002 and Visual Studio .NET 2003 both had a propensity to persist your temporary ideas as permanent projects on your hard disk.

Saves Time

Debugger DataTipsfor Complex Numbers

  • DataTips have the ability to drill into the hierarchy for the type.

  • You can also edit those values from within the data tips.

No Separate Window Needed

Visual Basic Error Correction Dialog Box

Immediate Window (is Back)


Makes it simple to determine why invalid code won't compile, and to choose from multiple options in order to fix the errors in code.

Exception Assistant

RunTime Errors

Coding Differences

Visual Basic .NET 2003

  • Const GreetingName As String = "Greeting"Dim sDisplay As ObjectDim ResMgr As ResourceManagerResMgr = New ResourceManager("ResourcesSample.MyStrings",_Me.GetType.Assembly)sDisplay = ResMgr.GetString(GreetingName)
