"Get it up and running – that's what it's all about. You don't have time to pore over page upon page of 'noise' in MSDN to try to figure out what would take 5 minutes for someone to show you. Les has done all that work for you and has broken it down into a clear, concise step-by-step process. This is a book you'll refer back to time and again as you write add-ins to improve on a good start," states Bob Flickinger, VP/COO, BeCubed Software.

"Smith has been developing add-ins since the release of Visual Basic 4.0 and has been developing applications in Visual Basic for over 12 years. Prior to his PC development experience, which included the use of C and Clipper, he had 20 years of experience in the development of mainframe operating systems for a major mainframe manufacturer." In addition to building applications for many large corporations, Smith has developed proprietary software for InfoPro's document processing of electronic dictation files. Smith's software will allow tracking of documents from dictation to electronic delivery to be automated.

Smith's book is available at all major bookstores and online at www.apress.com. For more information about Smith's book, please email him at lsmith@infoprogroup.com.

Augusta, GA - InfoPro Group, Inc. is proud to announce that Les Smith, Director of Software Development, has published a book titled "Writing Add-ins for Visual Studio .Net." Smith defines an add-in as a "tool that you create programmatically by using objects, methods, properties, collections, and events in .Net's extensibility object model. These objects and their respective methods, properties and events enable you to automate difficult and tedious tasks within the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). These tasks are usually accomplished in response to an event, such as the mouse being clicked, a form being added to a project, or a control being added to a form. The action may or may be visible to the developer."

Smith's book published by Apress, "is designed to get add-in developers up to speed in developing add-ins in Visual Studio .Net and to teach add-in development to developers who want to learn to write add-ins." Smith states, "This book is for intermediate to advanced VB programmers who may or may not have previous experience writing add-ins. The object of this book is to take you from the basics of simply creating your first add-in to building some fairly complex features into an add-in." The book begins by defining an add-in, working with the add-in wizard, manipulating code, using macros and working with multiple languages to then building an add-in.
