Telling Time with .NET:
Build your own Internet Time Component
$9.95 [eBook]


Book Cover
Learn to add a precision clock to your .NET applications.

This eBook covers the design and construction of an Internet Time Component - a class that can determine the current time with sub-second accuracy. Along the way you'll learn both basic and advanced .NET programming techniques including:

  • Using .NET socket classes.
  • Using regular expressions to validate incoming data.
  • Customizing .NET classes using inheritance to overcome limitations in the base class.
  • Using Code Access Security to create software that will run in partially trusted environments.

You'll end up with a simple but reliable class that can not only be used to obtain accurate time, but to automatically set your system clock to within a fraction of a second of the correct time.

Sample code is provided in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.
