Build Outstanding User Interfaces with .NET: Principles, Techniques, and Code

Nowadays, users and clients demand exceptionally usable software. But few developers are trained to create high-quality user interfaces, and few .NET books offer much helpuntil now.

In Seeing Data , Microsoft MVP Rebecca M. Riordan shows how to use .NET’s advanced UI tools to build applications that reflect today’s interface design best practices. She offers visual examples, code, and techniques for every .NET project.

Writing for experienced .NET developers, Riordan introduces core principles of effective interface designincluding focus, flow, alignment, proximity, contrast, and consistency. She demonstrates how to architect databases for better usability, and how to build more effective form layouts. Next, she systematically tackles user interaction, showing how to:

  • Help users navigate DataSets, manipulate data, and generate reports
  • Utilize menus, toolbars, buttons, and Help systems
  • Enforce data integrity
  • Simplify installation and customization

Riordan covers essential technical underpinnings ranging from GDI+ Managed Classes to ADO.NET data binding. She presents dozens of Visual Basic .NET examplesall designed for easy, quick reuse, and downloadable from the book’s companion Web site, along with C# equivalents.
