4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, but Mistitled, April 25, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Data Binding with Windows Forms 2.0: Programming Smart Client Data Applications with .NET (Paperback)
This book is an excellent introduction to Windows Forms in .NET 2.0, but is really not titled correctly. In particular, the subtitle "Programming Smart Client Data Applications with .NET" is blatantly misleading considering:

1. Offline data access (or disconnected mode usage), by definition a core component of smart clients, is covered for a total of 3 sentences in this book.

2. Other relevant smart client topics, such as ClickOnce deployment, are either addressed in the single "What is a smart client?" section (one page!) or ignored altogether.

I'm giving this book 4 stars because it really is a great book for those venturing into building Windows Forms 2.0 applications (also touching relevant topics like ASP.NET, WinFX and XAML), but the title should have ignored any reference to smart clients altogether. If you're a developer looking for a great resource for building apps in VS.NET 2005, this is the book for you. If you're looking for a smart client resource like I was, this is not it.
