“To anyone looking to augment their existing MFC code base and knowledge with the powerful .NET classes—which provide such capabilities as disconnected data, in-memory database (IMDB), regular expressions, and data encryption—Tom Archer’s book has it all.”
—Erik Westermann, Lead Architect, Eidenai Innovations
Extending MFC Applications with the .NET Framework is the first book to show MFC developers how to boost productivity by incorporating .NET functionality into existing MFC applications. Tom Archer clearly illustrates how using the .NET Base Class Library (BCL)—to complement or replace MFC classes when there is a clear advantage—enables MFC developers to create elegant and robust Windows applications in the most efficient way possible.
Each chapter begins with an introduction that explains the technology, outlines its benefits, lists its pragmatic business uses, and summarizes the required syntax. As is an Archer trademark, this information is solidified with hands-on, practical demo applications.
This book answers the questions MFC developers have about .NET, including:
The CD-ROM supplies the complete downloadable source code, working samples, and test code from the book, as well as several productivity-enhancing utilities such as a Visual Studio .NET Custom AppWizard.
