Migrating to Visual Basic .NET

Sessions Run Time Pages
2 CDs 3 hours 150

With Visual Basic .NET, Microsoft has completely redesigned Visual Basic from the ground up to produce a new and better product. Almost every aspect of Visual Basic has been changed, updated, or improved in some fashion in Visual Basic .NET. Because of the significant changes, there is no direct path of migration for most code when upgrading an application to Visual Basic .NET. This course discusses the many changes that have been implemented in Visual Basic .NET and analyzes how to upgrade code and forms developed using Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic .NET, including code that uses data access and the new version of ActiveX Data Objects, ADO.NET.

In this course you will learn...

  • The core components and tools used in .NET as well as Microsoft’s reasons for taking such a big leap forward in development.

  • New Visual Basic .NET concepts such as multithreading, full inheritance, and structured exception handling.
  • Migrate existing ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) code to use the ADO.NET framework and object model.
  • Migrate existing Visual Basic 6.0 code to its Visual Basic .NET equivalent or successor.
  • Migrate existing Visual Basic 6.0 forms and user interface controls to .NET.

Prerequisites: This course is geared toward upgrading existing applications to .NET. Students should have a thorough knowledge of how to develop applications using Visual Basic 6.0 and how to access data using ActiveX Data Objects (ADO).
