From the Back Cover

Professional Web Parts and Custom Controls with ASP.NET 2.0

Custom controls, user controls, and Web Parts can make you more productive in many ways. You can create re-usable components for your WebForms, package a piece of your user interface and re-use it across several Web sites, and create exactly the ASP.NET controls you want. Web Parts, new with ASP.NET 2.0, allow you to create user interfaces with the user's involvement, making you more productive than ever before.

This book teaches you how to create controls using Visual Studio® 2005. Packed with business-related applications, it explains the costs and benefits of different ways to accomplish a goal, offers scenarios illustrating the use of each technique, and helps you make informed choices as you develop controls specifically geared to your business purposes.

What you will learn from this book

  • The role of user controls, custom controls, and Web Parts in solving specific problems
  • Methods for setting up your custom control project in Visual Studio 2005
  • How to create a Web Part and extend the framework by adding functions
  • New features in ASP.NET 2.0 that help you manage state in your controls
  • How to add client-side code to custom controls, build your own validator control, and create a databinding control

Who this book is for

This book is for professional Web developers who already know how to create a WebForm and want to begin creating their own controls. Some experience with creating objects is helpful, but advanced skill as an object developer is not necessary.

Wrox Professional guides are planned and written by working programmers to meet the real-world needs of programmers, developers, and IT professionals. Focused and relevant, they address the issues technology professionals face every day. They provide examples, practical solutions, and expert education in new technologies, all designed to help programmers do a better job.

Peter seems to know what he's talking about. Unfortunately the book is FULL of mistakes. Peter codes in VB, and the C# translations that he provides were obviously not tested. They were copied and psted from the VB code and only half translated. They don't even come close to compiling. I would have hoped downloading the code from the wrox website would have provided the fixes, but unfortuntatly they rushed this one out, and didn't look back.

A month or so ago VS 2005 arrived. One of the new things is Web Parts. I looked, I scratched my head I played around with them a little bit, and really got no where. Some searching on the web and nothing that really helped at the usual ASP sites.

I have done the quick afternoon read on the book, and now am on chapter two as I work through the text in some detail. So far the book is excellent. No long winded code examples that float off in to nether land, this stuff is right to the point and easy to understand. Peter Vogel seems to make the very correct assumption that the readers of this book already know the language they use and the development tool they use. However, just as it says on the back cover, "Some experience with creating objects is helpful, but advanced skill as an object developer is not necessary", is right on. What this really means is that anybody writing any kind of website with ASP.Net can grasp this book. And everybody who is considering getting into webparts on their websites should get this book.

Out of all the books I have, this is the most poorly written one. Terms are misused and mixed up in the later chapters (which I realized after further research of my own). No one example that progresses throughout the book. It's like he figured out how this works, did a quick off-the-wall example and through it in the book. In some cases, the information you used from a previous chapter will not work with a future chapter without making changes, if you would have used one example through out the book you would have realized this. I am also giving him one star b/c he felt that he needed to give himself 5, this will bring it down to more accurate rating.

Peter has done great at explaining the intricacies of ASP.Net 2 web parts. If you have not yet been exposed to ASP.Net 2 web parts...YOUR MISSING OUT! If you develop web applications, you will find that this book is your beginning to creating the next generation of webapps. Grab some coffee, pick up the book, and be prepared to be fascinated with this niche of the ASP.Net 2 platform!

I've always been a little wary of Wrox books, and this is one that strengthens that opinion.

There's a few good tidbits in here, but you have to look hard.

If you can get it for really cheap in the bargain bin at half price books, it might be worth it.

But then again, asp 2.0 is yesterday's tech....

I am very upset for this book. As a beginner, I just followed him to create a simple custom control. I found out that things were not gonna happen as what he told me, and the sample code didn't work also. I won't trust and won't follow him anymore, he just mass me up.

I'm giving one star to balance unfair author's 5 stars. Poorly written, examples have nothing to do with the content of the book. They are full of bugs and some do not work. The author is not an expert in the subject, he just barely figured out how this things work. It is not programmer to programmer, it's a businessman to programmer. I'm taking the books back to bookstore.
