Contact Desaware directly to purchase the eBook edition.

The print edition of this book is out of print, however a new eBook edition is now available. This edition also includes new commentary contrasting the COM based material with the .NET framework. Ideal for those who need to sharpen their VB6 skills, support legacy applications, or need a portable or full text searchable version of the book.


This book extends on the material in the Visual Basic documentation. It includes advanced techniques, in depth explanations of how and why COM/ActiveX components work the way they do, and how you can take full advantage of the capabilities of Visual Basic's new component and control development features. This book is designed to be a commentary on the VB documentation -- not a replacement, and it is definitely not a manual rehash.
