About The BookLearn a classroom-tested method for building robust, composite smart-client applications.

Get practical, hands-on instruction for learning the Composite UI Application Block (CAB) and the Smart Client Software Factory. Using just your fundamental Microsoft Visual Basic or Visual C# skills, you’ll work through seven lessons that present real-world scenarios. Each lesson is based on proven classroom guidance—building the skills your need to easily create user interface components for smart-client solutions.

Discover how to:

  • Generate a shell application and implement prefabricated or custom CAB services

  • Use work items and controllers to share resources in loosely coupled applications

  • Optimize visual information display by using Workspaces and SmartParts

  • Add and modify menus, toolbars, and status bars by using the CAB user interface extension

  • Announce and receive asynchronous events within an application

  • Invoke methods in the Action Catalog service to coordinate application business-logic

  • Match CAB constructs to Windows Presentation Foundation
