In the next few videos we are going to take a look at the integrated development environment or the IDE, you may hear it called from time to time and this is visual studio 7. Now, you'll also hear it called visual studio .NET. Microsoft released a new version of visual studio with the .NET release and this thing picked up quite a few features. I've already mentioned, integrated development environment is what IDE stands for and there is a lot of a radically different things in here. First of all this is a common environment for all languages. Now if you remember in VB6 or visual studio 6, you opened up a different visual studio based on which language you were using. If you were using C++, or visual C++ you opened up a different section of visual studio than if you were using Visual Basic. And the same thing for J++; well now we open up the same visual studio and we choose our projects from inside there. It is very similar to visual studio 6. You are not going to be lost, and you are not going to be confused. It's very, very similar. But it just has a little more functionality that is really, really cool. One of the main things that you have now is the start page. This thing is customizable, you can make it look anyway you want to, and I'll show you the start page in just a few minutes. The start page is built in HTML, it's got an HTML web kind of a look and it's also linked directly to the Internet. Now I'll show you how that works in just as few minutes. And so let me show you an example of that, let's go out and open a new visual studio and let you see what it looks like. So I'm going to click start>programs then I'm going to go to Microsoft visual studio .NET, and I'm going to choose Microsoft-visual-studio .NET You'll see it pops up, it looks a little different here and this is the way it looks. Now my screen resolution for this video is not exactly optimal, so keep in mind this looks even cleaner on a large screen. Now this is the start page, you'll notice down the left side I have a lot of different things that I can do now. Now the first thing on the get started section I can go to applications that have already been opened. And you'll notice it kind of has an HTML feel here. I can open a project, an existing project and this is the name of the last view. And then I can create a new project by clicking here, and then if I want to look at samples I can click on find some samples and go look for those things. But I'm going to click on projects, notice there's a what's new here. And I can click on what's new. This thing will give me some new information and notice it is basically linking me to some things - what's new in visual studio and notice it's trying to go out, it's trying to open up Internet explorer and go out into the documentation files. And so this is showing you what's new in visual studio .NET. So I'm going to hit the back button up here to navigate back to where I was and I go back to my start. Online community, on some of these things, I'm not connected to the Internet right here. You'll notice that it requires that I be connected to the Internet and this is going to go to an online community and notice I can do filtering here for what particular version of or programming language I'm trying to go into. I can click on headlines, this would give me current headlines from Microsoft about visual studio .NET, or .NET as a whole. I can search online if there is something that I want to find, and notice this will take me straight into the MSDN online library, so I can type my keywords here and click go, and this will take me straight to the Internet. Downloads - this will give me download information for the various applications. Again straight from Microsoft's online site. XML web services - again I have to be online to get these. Web hosting - online to get them. Now my profile, notice this one, this is where I can tell it how to make everything look. And notice I can set my profiles, visual studio developer or Visual Basic developer, or C++ developer, or notice an old visual InterDev developer, and it will kind of make me feel more at home. The keyboard layout, Visual Basic 6 and this has to do with the different function keys and how they work. The window layout - you have some choices here on how the window layout works, and then the help filters. And for example if I'm only going to be using Visual Basic then I could choose Visual Basic and related, so that when I look at a help file, I don't have to see things about C# or visual C++, and platform SDK and so forth. So I can set that and it will take care of that for me. Now you'll notice also that there is a show help and at startup section, and I can choose settings on those to determine exactly what kind of help I get, and what's going to be showing at startup. And so right now I chose Visual Basic and related on my help filters, and so what this thing is doing is going through and rebuilding the index on the help files. Now notice on show help, I can do internal help or external help, and it's telling me that this won't happen until visual studio gets restarted. Then at startup I can tell it to show an empty environment, to show the start page, and so forth. So I'm going to leave it at start page. Now that's the difference; now I'm going to go to back up here to get started, and you are going to notice that when I say new project, it's going to take me into an area; and notice I didn't open visual studio or as Visual Basic or C# or anything. Notice here's my ASP net, if I want to build an ASP net web application, and you'll notice it has a link to my web server, or if I want to build a console application, this is for command line and console type operations, and then you'll see empty web projects and so forth, and these are all Visual Basic based situations. Notice database projects, visual studio solutions and so forth. Now back here on my profile, I set some settings, and let me scroll up here. And you would normally see C# and so forth out here. But I didn't install those when I installed visual studio; so you'll notice that I bring everything up into the same place and visual studio was then going to take me where I need to go from this one location. Now, in the next video we are going to look at how they really cleaned up the display on this and how it gives you the most space you could possibly have for coding. So I'll see you in the next video.
