From cave painting and Pompeian houses to the wallpaper scenery of a quarter-century ago, murals have come and gone from the home. These two books are evidence of a recent resurgence. Marvelous Murals is a good, straightforward manual for mountain scenes, woodlands, waterfalls, musical themes, underwater motifs, and farm scenes. Beginners will appreciate the progressive difficulty of the exercises, starting with room preparation and simple silhouettes and advancing to complex textures and perspectives. In Trompe l'Oeil Murals Using Stencils, Royals hopes to make it possible for the novice to achieve the heightened reality of the genre using the simplest of tools and methods. She begins with preliminary tryouts and small-scale projects for faux surfaces, like used brick, stone blocks, velvet drapery, and marble. Six major projects take on arched brick windows, lattice windows, limestone niches, etc. Both of these books are recommended for crafts collections.

101 Visual Basic Applications

Author(s): Sean Campbell, Scott Swigart, Bob Carver

The 101 sample applications that make up this book contain code that answers many common questions a beginner-to-intermediate-level Microsoft Visual Basic .NET developer is faced with when building Microsoft .NET applications.

Each sample application was developed using a set of coding conventions (which you’ll find in this book), and each sample shares a common look and feel, as much as possible. Each sample also includes a readme.htm file that explains some basics of the application in case you’re reviewing a sample without having the book close at hand.

The samples in this book are ready to be run in either the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002 or 2003 development environment. You can find the Visual Studio .NET 2003 files in Chapter folders within the \101VBApps folder; look inside the VS2002 folder within the \101VBApps folder for the Visual Studio .NET 2002 files.

Finally each application is designed to be “F5-able,” meaning that they should all run out of the box, without any special configuration. Any circumstances for which specific software or setup is needed is fully documented in the readme. The only general requirement is that you have Microsoft SQL Server installed either as a default instance or an instance installed with the name NETSDK. You can easily install a version of SQL Server by installing the version of MSDE that ships with the .NET Framework quickstarts.

Explore 101 of the most useful Visual Basic .NET applications in action—and jumpstart your own Microsoft .NET Framework-based development projects. This guide provides expert, behind-the-code commentary on 101 fully executable code samples—distilling more than 700 hours of programming time into best practices for Microsoft Windows Forms development. Each code sample demonstrates core features and functions of Visual Basic .NET and the .NET Framework, explains the underlying programming concepts, and provides a complete code walkthrough. From creating basic data entry forms to drilling deep into the .NET Framework, you’ll learn the techniques that Microsoft’s own developers use to write real-world applications with Visual Basic .NET.
