Good book on Windows Forms with .Net
Has anybody got a recommendation on a Wiindows Forms book, I was planning to buy the Chris Sells one but thought I'd ask for opinions first.
That book is good. I also like "Windows Forms: Programming with C#" by Erik Brown.
I loved Charles Petzold's books. They go into fascinating (or excruciating depending on your perspective) detail about the topics they DO cover, which are heavy on things like text manipulation, bitmaps, coordinate systems, etc. IIRC he bypasses some major important topics such as the Grid control, though. You may feel his is a little introductory but I have been doing this forever and I loved it. He is a terrifice author.
Charles Petzold, "Programming Windows with C#", is indeed a good book.
Thanks for the advice, I went for the Chris Sells book in the end.
I have all three books mentioned... but... did you ever notice there aren't many Windows Forms books? Well, at least compared to ASP.NET books. :(
