Take an exploratory trip through the nooks and crannies of the Windows API – and pick up 20,000 lines of source code along the way
Develop production-quality applications capable of running on any 32-bit version of Windows – including Win 2000
WARNING– Error handling has been included (to show how it's done!)
Are you tired of the typically fragmented approaches of instructional materials that focus on minimalist examples, illustrating arcane APIs and subsystems, "eliminating error handling for clarity," and never demonstrating how it all comes together?
This book presents a holistic process of design and implementation that ensures the development of production-quality applications capable of running on any 32-bit version of Windows – including Win 2000. The author explains the development of a complete Windows application to demonstrate all aspects of application design, language selection, platform implementation, usability issues, and the myriad details of implementation. It is the comprehensive scope of the presentation, including details of drag and drop, shell integration, testing, internationalization, installation, and registry handling that makes this book unique.
