Using Advanced Controls


Visual C# includes a number of controls that go beyond the standard functionality of the traditional controls discussed in Hour 7. In this hour, I discussed the most commonly used advanced controls. You learned how to use the Timer control to trigger events at predetermined intervals. You also learned how to use the Tab control to create the tabbed dialog boxes with which you're so familiar.

Also in this hour, you learned how to add pictures to an Image List control so that other controls can use them. The Image List makes it easy to share pictures among many controls, making it a useful tool. Finally, I taught you the basics of the List View and Tree View controlstwo controls you can use to build high-end interfaces that present structured data. The more time you spend with all these controls, the better you'll become at creating great interfaces.
