This is a practical tutorial to writing Visual Basic (VB6 and VB.NET) programs using some of the most common design patterns. This book also provides a convenient way for VB6 programmers to migrate to VB.NET and use its more powerful object-oriented features. Organized as a series of short chapters that each describe a design pattern, Visual Basic Design Patterns provides one or more complete working visual examples of programs using that pattern, along with UML diagrams illustrating how the classes interact. Each example is a visual program that students can run and study on the companion CD making the pattern as concrete as possible.

From the Back Cover:

Design patterns provide programmers with a convenient way to reuse object-oriented code across projects and between programmers, offering easy, time-saving solutions to commonly recurring problems in software design. A practical guide to writing Visual Basic (VB6 and VB.NET) programs using some of the most common design patterns, Visual Basic Design Patterns is a tutorial for people who want to learn about design patterns and how to use them in their work. This book also provides a convenient way for VB6 programmers to migrate to VB.NET and use its more powerful object-oriented features.

Written from a Visual Basic perspective, this book intends to make you comfortable with using design patterns by laying out the concept of patterns in a practical fashion. Organized as a series of short chapters that each describe a design pattern, Visual Basic Design Patterns provides one or more complete working visual examples of programs using that pattern, along with UML diagrams illustrating how the classes interact. Each example is a visual program that you can run and study on the companion CD making the pattern as concrete as possible. Programmers using this book will see significant improvement in their work by employing the following key concepts:

  • Applying "tried-and-true" object-oriented design patterns in Visual Basic applications.
  • Helping advance programming skills with the power of patterns.
  • Understanding the interactions between classes through the use of UML diagrams.
  • Getting comfortable using design patterns effectively and start using them in day-to-day Visual Basic programming.

The idea behind design patterns is simple: it's a catalogue of common interactions between objects that programmers have found useful, enabling them to quickly and easily employ them in their programs. Visual Basic Design Patterns provides practical advice on how to use these patterns in everyday programming.

Synopsis:

Design patterns provide elegant, reusable solutions to commonly recurring problems in software design. They're invaluable -- but until now, they've been off-limits to most VB developers, because most design patterns have focused on either C++ or Java. In Visual Basic Design Patterns, James W. Cooper provides the definitive guide to design patterns for both Visual Basic 6 and Microsoft's new VB.NET. Using Cooper's patterns, VB developers can build software that is more robust, more scalable, and delivers far better performance in even the most challenging enterprise environments. Cooper begins with a gentle introduction to the idea and goals of patterns, showing how they can be used to improve both VB6 and VB.NET software. He organizes the book's patterns into three categories: Creational, Structural and Behavioral. For each pattern, the book offers a brief description followed by simple example programs in both VB6 and VB.NET, supported by both screen shots and simple UML diagrams. All code for both VB6 and VB.NET is provided on the accompanying CD-ROM.
