This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications using VB.NET

Course Description


This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications using VB.NET. This class provides a thorough introduction to the VB.NET programming language, including coverage of the essentials of the VB.NET programming language, built in data types, operators, control structures, classes and methods.

Students will learn the basics of XAML and how it, combined with VB.NET, is used to describe the appearance and behavior of WPF applications. Students also learn how to use ADO.NET to interact with data sources and display data. Other topics include examining WPF controls, working with images and multimedia content, scaling, rotating and skewing UI elements, and using WPF's powerful data binding features. Comprehensive labs and exercises provide the students with experience creating and deploying WPF applications.
