Internet Programming with Visual Basic 5 focuses on the creation of Internet clients and Web pages using Visual Basic (VB) and VBScript. You'll learn to build a simple Web browser using Internet Explorer 3.0 as the core control, FTP and HTTP applications for downloading text and binary data, and an e-mail application for handling Internet mail. You'll also learn how to create ActiveX controls and ActiveX documents that can be embedded in a Web page, and find out how to distribute them via the Internet. Three chapters on VBScript introduce Microsoft's browser scripting language.
The author assumes that you know something about VB programming although he does provide a quick review and an introduction to basic HTML concepts. Overall, this book is a real smorgasbord of client-side techniques. It is best suited for someone who wants to get a taste of the available possibilities rather than dig deeply into any single area. The FTP, HTTP, and e-mail sections, arguably the strongest parts of this book, will enable you to build your own custom applications. The bundled CD-ROM includes all sample projects from the book.
Internet Programming With Visual Basic® 5 is a complete introduction to the Internet capabilities of Visual Basic. From the new Internet ActiveX controls, to handling common Internet protocols, to a complete introduction to VBScript -- everything is here to quickly get you up to speed. Youll learn to create ActiveX controls of your own and add methods, events, and properties to existing controls. You'll also learn to create Internet-aware databases with Web-based front ends. All the code covered in the book is on the CD-ROM -- ready to run on your PC or on your Internet server.
