ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Engine developers can leverage the features and capabilities of the .NET SDK to build rich desktop applications. This session will illustrate how to move Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and VB6 code and applications to the latest version of Visual Studio and the .NET Framework. Developers will be introduced to a number of tools, design practices, tips and tricks, and self-help resources that are essential to making this transition possible. The session will include a discussion on the differences in language-specific constructs; error handling; data types; accessing the base application; IDE usage; component registration; and the development of common components such as commands, tools, menus, and toolbars.

Prerequisites: ArcObjects, VBA, VB6, .NET
