Chapter 12
Object-Based Programming

Forms and controls are recognized as objects. So, you have been working with objects since the first day you worked with VB. You can see these objects while you are designing your project. There are also objects such as the stream reader and the dataset of ADO.NET that are not visible on your form. All these objects have been defined and provided by others (Microsoft), not developed by yourself.
This chapter takes a different angle. You will learn how to develop your own templates of objects that you and other programmers can use. Before you can develop these objects, you will need to learn object-specific terminology. Section 12.1 discusses some of these terms. The remaining sections of this chapter deal with features that you can implement for the objects you develop.
