Object-Oriented Programming in VB .NET Learning Guide

Object-oriented programming is a major part of Visual Basic .NET. This Learning Guide offers best practices for OOP and addresses its major characteristics: abstraction, encapsulation, polymorphism and inheritance.

Object-oriented programming, which focuses on objects and data rather than actions and logic, is a major element of Visual Basic .NET development. OOP, as it is abbreviated, is only used sparingly in VB 6, so if you're about to make the move to VB.NET, now's the time to get acquainted with it. This learning guide offers article, tips, book excerpts and tutorials that focus on general object-oriented programming best practices and on...

the four main characteristics of OOP -- abstraction, encapsulation, polymorphism and inheritance.
