This article identifies the Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.0 or 1.1 APIs that provide similar functionality to Microsoft Win32 functions. One or more relevant .NET Framework APIs are shown for each Win32 function listed.
The intended audience for this article is experienced Win32 developers who are creating applications or libraries based on the Microsoft .NET Framework, but anyone looking for a managed counterpart for a Win32 function could find this document useful.
This is cool:
“With SQL Server Yukon, you could do the following:
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Person] (
[Id] [int] IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL ,
[Person] [Person] NOT NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
The Person type is a .NET class. Columns in Yukon can be typed to custom .NET classes.”
[c#] The guys from Rolla never disappoints. This article is to the point and gives a excellent introduction to the most used data structures; the queue, stack and hashtable.
In this excellent article Sune Trudslev explains how to document using the XML tags, how to use NDoc to convert the XML into very nice looking HTML Help files, and last but not least, how to integrate the help into Visual Studio .NET.
