C# How to Program Dietel: The authoritative DEITEL™ LIVE-CODE™ introduction to Windows®, .NET, Internet and World Wide Web programming in C#
This new book by the world’s leading programming-language textbook authors carefully explains how to use C#—the premier language in Microsoft’s .NET initiative—as a general-purpose programming language, and how to develop multi-tier, client/server, data-base-intensive, Internet- and Web-based applications.
Dr. Harvey M. Deitel and Paul J. Deitel are the founders of Deitel & Associates, Inc., the internationally-recognized corporate-training and content-creation organization specializing in C#, Visual Basic® .NET, Visual C++® .NET, Java™, C++, C, XML™, Python, Perl; Internet, Web, wireless, e-business and object technologies. The Deitels are the authors of several worldwide #1 programming-language textbooks, including Java How to Program, 4/e, C++ How to Program, 3/e and Internet & World Wide Web How to Program, 2/e.
In C# How to Program the Deitels and their colleagues, Jeff Listfield, Tem. R. Nieto, Cheryl Yaeger and Marina Zlatkina, discuss topics you need to build complete .NET, Web-based applications. Key topics include:
- .NET Introduction/IDE/Debugger
- Web Services/ASP.NET
- Control Structures/Methods/Properties
- Classes/Data Abstraction
- Arrays/Data Structures/Collections
- Database/ADO .NET/SQL
- Web Forms/Web Controls/Accessibility
- Files/Streams/Strings/Regular Expressions
- Operator Overloading/COM Integration
- Bit and Character Manipulation/Unicode®
C# How to Program includes extensive pedagogic features:
- Hundreds of LIVE-CODE™ programs with screen captures that show exact outputs
- Internet and World Wide Web resources to encourage further research
- Hundreds of tips, recommended practices and cautions—all marked with icons
C# How to Program is the centerpiece of a complete family of resources for teaching and learning C#, including several Web sites (www.deitel.com, www.prenhall.com/deitel and www.InformIT.com/deitel) with the book’s source-code examples (which are also on the enclosed CD) and other information for faculty, students and professionals; an optional interactive CD (C# Multimedia Cyber Classroom) containing hyperlinks, solutions to half the book’s exercises and audio walkthroughs of the book’s code examples; and e-mail access to the authors at:

Welcome to C# and the world of Windows, Internet and World-Wide-Web programming with Visual Studio and the .NET platform! This book is the second in our new .NET How to Program series, which presents various leading-edge computing technologies in the context of the .NET platform.
C# is the next phase in the evolution of C and C++ and was developed expressly for Microsoft’s .NET platform. C# provides the features that are most important to programmers, such as object-oriented programming, strings, graphics, graphical-user-interface (GUI) components, exception handling, multithreading, multimedia (audio, images, animation and video), file processing, prepackaged data structures, database processing, Internet and World-Wide-Web-based client/server networking and distributed computing. The language is appropriate for implementing Internet- and World-Wide-Web-based applications that seamlessly integrate with PC-based applications.
The .NET platform offers powerful capabilities for software development and deployment, including independence from a specific language or platform. Rather than requiring developers to learn a new programming language, programmers can contribute to the same software project, but write code using any (or several) of the .NET languages (such as Visual Basic .NET, Visual C++ .NET, C# and others) with which they are most competent. In addition to providing language independence, .NET extends program portability by enabling .NET applications to reside on, and communicate across, multiple platforms—thus facilitating the delivery of Web services over the Internet. .NET enables Web-based applications to be distributed to consumer-electronic devices, such as cell phones and personal digital assistants, as well as to desktop computers. The capabilities that Microsoft has incorporated into the .NET platform create a new software-development paradigm that will increase programmer productivity and decrease development time.
New Features in C# How to Program
This edition contains many new features and enhancements, including:
- Two-Color Presentation. This book is in two color. Two color enables readers to see sample outputs similar to how they would appear on a color monitor. Also, we syntax color the C# code similar to the way Visual Studio .NET colors the code in its editor window. Our syntax-coloring conventions are as follows:
– literal values
– text, class, method and variable names
- “Code Washing.” This is our term for the process we use to format the programs in the book so that they have a carefully commented, open layout. The code appears in full color and grouped into small, well-documented pieces. This greatly improves code readability—an especially important goal for us, considering that this book contains approximately 23,500 lines of code.
- Web Services and ASP.NET. Microsoft’s .NET strategy embraces the Internet and Web as integral to the software development and deployment processes. Web services—a key technology in this strategy—enables information sharing, commerce and other interactions using standard Internet protocols and technologies, such as Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Extensible Markup Language (XML).
