In Depth

We've got quite a number of Windows forms controls to cover in this chapter—scroll bars, splitters, track bars, pickers, notify icons, tool tips, and timers. Fortunately, they're all simple controls. Some of them—such as splitters and notify icons—are entirely new to Visual Basic .NET, and the others have all changed greatly from the VB6 days, as you might expect. I'll start by discussing each of these controls in some depth, including their useful properties, methods, and events.
