Object Oriented Programming Under Windows NT and 95

Front Cover
Digital Press, Feb 16, 1999 - Computers - 400 pages
Objected-Oriented Programming for Windows 95 and NT brings the power of true object-oriented programming methods to real-world Windows development.

The book describes fundamental object-oriented programming methods and explains how readers may apply them within the Windows 95 (and 98) and Windows NT environments using three leading programming tools - Microsoft Visual C++ and Visual Basic and Borland Delphi.

Readers will understand how traditional object-oriented principles and techniques correspond to the characteristics of modern operating environments and how OOP approaches can help them more efficiently create genuinely user-friendly applications. The book describes from an object perspective many important Windows programming components and tasks, including: windows and dialog boxes, ActiveX and other controls, menus, event handling, graphics, file access, on-line help, and OLE (object linking and embedding).

Objected-Oriented Programming for Windows 95 and NT will help both beginning and experienced Windows developers bolster their programming arsenal and can help any developer make the transition from traditional, non-object environments to object-oriented programming methods.
