The Visual Studio 2010 Basics

To  start  programming  with  Visual  Studio,  you  should  know  some  common  terminology that is used most frequently in Visual Studio.
  • Project:  An  application  developed  in  Visual  Studio.  That  may  be  of  different types  such  as  Console  application,  Windows  application,  Windows  Service,  Web site etc.
  • Solution:  Collection of one or more projects. Initially, in a solution, one project will be placed. Later, you can add other projects to it.
  • Build:  Compilation  of  entire  .NET  Project  (all  the  files  will  be  compiled  at-atime).
  • Class: A collection of data members and methods (member functions).
                   Example of the Class

  • Namespace:  It‘s  nothing  but  a  collection  of  classes.  It  may  also  contain  sub namespaces.  A  project  may  require  implementing  at  least  one  or  more  classes. Any class can‘t be defined individually, without a namespace.  In .NET, all of the classes related one application should be defined with a user defined namespace.
