Chapter 3 provided you with an opportunity to experiment with some of the new features in Visual Basic .NET. You will use structured exception handling and create objects in every substantial program you write in Visual Basic .NET.
In addition to demonstrating how to use exception-handling blocks, create objects, and pass parameters to constructors, this chapter demonstrated how to declare and initialize variables and use several of the new Abstract Data Types defined in System. Collections.
Chapter 4 will look at how to get more mileage out of your development experience by using macros and the Automation Extensibility Model to customize and extend the Visual Studio IDE.
