I want to add stories, publish stories, receive comments, etc. all on the
Windows Application and when such a request is received, I would like for a
Tiny Box to popup as in the case when you receive an Email at your hotmail
account the MSN Messenger display's that you have reiceved an email.
I will be using VB .NET. So Is there a path which I have to take to develop
a Windows Application so that I wont have to go to my website through the
Browser rather do all my changes and updates from the Application.
For eg. look at http://pages.ebay.com/turbo_lister/
Turbo lister which is an application through which you dont have to go to
ebay's website to sell products. You can login to your account from the
Application and make changes and sell etc etc.
This is what I want to achieve in order to control the whole Administration
Section of my Website.
Where should I start to acheive this. Is there any book, any website , any
tutorial's to learn.
What exactly is this called. Is it VB Net Programming, or Web Services , or
Window Forms Programming etc.
I need to have a better understanding in order to acheive the above, where
shoudl I start.
I have access to these three Books:
1 ). Addison Wesley Windows Forms Programming In Visual Basic Dot NET
2). MS Press 101 Microsoft Visual Basic Dot NET Applications
3). MS Press Microsoft Visual Basic Dot NET Step By Step Version.2003
Are the above books enough to begin with or am I off the track. I really
dont know what to look for.
