Augusta, GA - InfoPro Group, Inc. is proud to announce that Les Smith, Director of Software Development, has published a book titled "Writing Add-ins for Visual Studio .Net." Smith defines an add-in as a "tool that you create programmatically by using objects, methods, properties, collections, and events in .Net's extensibility object model. These objects and their respective methods, properties and events enable you to automate difficult and tedious tasks within the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). These tasks are usually accomplished in response to an event, such as the mouse being clicked, a form being added to a project, or a control being added to a form. The action may or may be visible to the developer."
Smith's book published by Apress, "is
designed to get add-in developers up to speed in developing add-ins in Visual
Studio .Net and to teach add-in development to developers who want to learn
to write add-ins." Smith states, "This book is for intermediate
to advanced VB programmers who may or may not have previous experience writing
add-ins. The object of this book is to take you from the basics of simply
creating your first add-in to building some fairly complex features into an
add-in." The book begins by defining an add-in, working with the add-in
wizard, manipulating code, using macros and working with multiple languages
to then building an add-in.
