Build Windows applications that will function reliably on any Windows platform - including Win 2000
Windows applications designed for large audiences, whether for commercial production or for large corporate user groups, need to have 'industrial strength' reliability. This book shows how to design production quality applications that move seamlessly between Windows versions - including Windows 2000.
The author takes the reader through the development of an original application step-by-step in order to demonstrate all aspects of application design, platform compatibility, usability issues and the myriad details of error handling and recovery, testing, installation issues, internationalization and registry issues. The demonstration application, TextEdit, is implemented using C++ and the native Win32 API, to run on Win95/98, WinNT 4.0/5.0, and on Win 2000. The comprehensive scope of the author's presentation, including details of drag and drop, shell integration, testing, internationalization, installation, etc., are what makes this book unique.
