Extending MFC Applications with the .NET Framework

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley Professional, 2003 - Computers - 626 pages
The Microsoft Found Classes (MFC) compose the class library for Microsoft's Visual C++. First introduced over 10 years ago, this class library is now in use by approximately 1.5 million programmers, and is the subject of many books, articles, and Web sites. MFC developers, along with their hundreds of thousands of existing applications, are not going to migrate to .NET overnight. On the other hand, there is no doubt that .NET is the future of Microsoft development. Therefore, instead of writing yet another .NET book trying to move MFC developers to .NET entirely, this book attempts to get these MFC developers on board today by showing them how to continue using MFC and combine it with .NET to become more productive. Then over time, MFC developers will move to .NET. For now, this book focuses on this untapped group of MFC developers who fall into the category of "late adopters". While there are several books on COM and .NET interoperability, they really focus more on making your new .NET apps interact with your legacy apps. We don't know of another book quite like this one.
