     Some useful routines for those just starting out in VB.NET. File handling routines, embedded resources, graphics, system icons, ownerdrawn listboxes, serialization and much more. Presented in a format familiar to those who have used my VB 6 beginners toolboxes. Source code relevent to the current tab appearing in a text box ready for copying/saving. Included in this solution are 3 other projects I did when I first obtained Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003. They are 3 simple clones of Calculator, Notepad and Minesweeper. I find that one of the best learning exercises you can do is to write clones of existing software. The coding strategies employed in an application are not always obvious until you come to duplicate the software yourself.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
