Figure 2-24. The .NETbase class library reference

Each node defines the set of types in a given namespace, the members of a given type, and the parameters of a given member. Furthermore, when you view the help page for a given type, you will be told the name of the assembly and namespace that contains the type in question (located at the top of said page). As you read through the remainder of this book, I assume that you will dive into this very, very critical node to read up on additional details of the entity under examination.

Note I'd like to stress again the importance of working with the supplied .NET Framework 3.5 documentation. When you are learning a brand-new framework and programming language, you will need to roll up your sleeves and dig into the details. No book, regardless of its size, can cover every detail of building applications with Visual Basic 2008 or the .NET platform. Thus, if you encounter a type or member that you would like more information about as you work through this text, be sure to leverage your help system!
