Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Programmer's Cookbook (Pro-Developer)

Finally, a book with one-stop shopping for VB.NET! I’ve read several cookbook-style programming titles in the past, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this has much more depth than I expected. It can’t cover everything (.NET is huge), but every time I pick the book up I learn something new. There are so many highlights–just browse through the table of contents and you’ll see what I mean!
Here are some of my favorites:
* Send keystrokes to another app
* Create a thread-safe control wrapper
* Great data-binding tips (image-to-picture box, etc.)
* Factory, Registry, Singleton, Memento, and Lazy Initialization patterns
* POP3, FTP, and Ping classes in the networking section
* How to change a password into a salted hash for storage in a database
* Use ZIP and PDF files (disclaimer: some third-party code is required, although it’s free)
* Manage print jobs that are underway
* Get Windows accounts and roles
* Do hit testing with custom graphics
* Defend against SQL injection
* Dynamically generate an ASP.NET graphic
* Add ASP.NET controls on the fly
* MAPI and MCI (unfortunately, just through the ActiveX controls)
* Upload binary data with a web service
* Use a web service in VB 6
