    Status Report - June 27, 2002

    Hey everyone. VSLive last week was a lot of fun. I got to meet a number of
    you and present a few sessions. Plus, I got to spend some time in NY as a
    visitor instead of as a native - quite a difference. <g>



    I've been spending a lot of time working with members of the VB Product Unit
    who've been going online and helping out here and in a number of other
    newsgroups and websites (btw, if you're into ASP.NET, check out www.asp.net
    for their new forums).



    The highlights for the week:


    1. I've got the VB Community website running on an internal server and being
    tested. Next job is to make sure it's in great shape (sure seems to be) and
    then "pour" it into the Gotdotnet template so we can go live. The admin
    pages aren't in beautiful shape, but hey, I can deal. <g>



    2. Lots of work on getting people online and more user group support. Lots
    of great feedback on the newsgroups this week.



    3. Work on the next version of VB .NET



    4. Work on rolling out community awareness and feedback to the worldwide
    subs. Continuing to work with many others on a plan now so that we can do it
    properly.



    5. More chats planned - we're just about done with August and moving into
    September. As always, if you miss them, the transcripts are put online at
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/chats.

    Upcoming chats (http://msdn.microsoft.com/chats):

    Windows Forms Custom Control Development

    Tuesday, July 2, 2002, 1:00 - 2:00 P.M. Pacific time (21:00 - 22:00 GMT)

    Recently, MSDN featured a number of whitepapers on Windows Forms control
    development. "Developing Custom Windows Controls Using Visual Basic .NET"
    (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...-us/dndotnet/h
    tml/custcntrlsampover.asp ) is an overview with links to a number of
    specific walkthroughs. In this chat we'll discuss these whitepapers and some
    of the issues involved in developing controls.



    Creating Accessible Applications with Visual Studio .NET

    Tuesday, July 9, 2002, 1:00 - 2:00 P.M. Pacific time (21:00 - 22:00 GMT)

    Did you know that making your applications accessible is an important aspect
    of development? In many cases, it is now required by law. Visual Studio .NET
    has a number of features to enable developers to easily accomplish this
    task. Come chat with experts about ways to incorporate this into your
    development practices and have your questions answered.



    Chat with Visual Basic Management

    Tuesday, July 23, 2002, 1:00 - 2:00 P.M. Pacific time (21:00 - 22:00 GMT)

    The management of the Visual Basic team would like to hear your suggestions
    for what features should be in the next major version of Visual Basic .NET.
    We've been collecting feedback via newsgroups and meetings, but we'd like to
    here from everyone.



    Building International Applications Using Visual Basic .NET

    Tuesday, August 6, 2002, 1:00 - 2:00 P.M. Pacific time (21:00 - 22:00 GMT)

    Planning and executing the development of an internationalized application
    can be difficult without the right preparation. Come talk with the experts
    about any questions you have regarding internalization.



    White Papers
    ADO.NET and XML: Two Great Tastes That Go Great Together

    There are many ways to view and work with data today. Traditionally we've
    used data access technologies such as ADO.NET, which provide us with
    powerful capabilities primarily focused on relational data. ADO and ADO.NET
    allow interaction with non-relational data, but the real focus is on
    traditional tabular data views. More recently we've seen the rise of XML,
    which is focused on hierarchical data representations In this article,
    Rockford Lhotka runs through the basics of using ADO.NET to work with XML.

    Tales from the Crypto
    This article started with a quest. I wanted a way to store my passwords in
    an encrypted file because I have a couple of dozen passwords and my memory
    is not what it once was. I know there are commercial tools to do this, but
    it looked like a useful exercise for learning a new technique in .NET. I
    ended up with a simple but complete program in Visual BasicŪ .NET for
    encrypting and decrypting a file, and I learned a lot along the way. Since
    encryption is an important topic for several kinds of development, this
    article shows you how to construct that program.

    Creating a Design Surface Using Windows Forms and GDI+ in Microsoft .NET
    This whitepaper covers techniques used to create a GDI+-based design surface
    for the user to create and position various graphic elements within a
    Windows Forms control in Microsoft .NET.

    This is the same URL as the ADO.NET and XML one above. Could you post the
    correct one?

    Thanks,
