FMS Ships Total .NET SourceBook™ 2005

New Professional Code Library for Visual Studio 2005

VIENNA, VA — October 30, 2006 — FMS released Total .NET SourceBook 2005, the latest version of its best-selling professional source code library and code repository for Visual Studio .NET. The newest version supports Visual Studio 2005 with a comprehensive collection of royalty free, ready-to-use .NET programming code in C# and Visual Basic .NET.

Total .NET SourceBook 2005 provides an extensive library of well-tested and documented original source code that can be inserted directly into projects and used immediately. Use the code as a black box to solve a problem, or examine our code line-by-line to learn or enhance its functionality. Since it's source code, it is completely open. Integrated directly into the Visual Studio IDE as an Add-In, Total .NET SourceBook works seamlessly in your environment to provide quality source code at your fingertips.

Total .NET SourceBook 2005 supports the new versions of Visual Studio .NET and the .NET Framework. It takes advantage of the new coding constructs and delivers quality, well written, documented, and tested code in both C# and VB. It is also backward compatible with code databases from all previous versions of Total .NET SourceBook.

In the code, there is the new version tag to distinguish between items that are relevant to different versions of the .NET Framework. This feature lets you keep code that is optimized for different .NET versions, and always know where the code should be used. You can even search for items by version, making it easy to find exactly what you need.

Total .NET SourceBook also allows you to link Web Forms and the code behind them, and Windows Forms and their designer code. This makes it easier than ever to export code items to your project.

"We are delighted to provide support for Visual Studio 2005 with additional code and even deeper integration into the Visual Studio IDE," said Luke Chung, President of FMS. "Whether you are a novice or expert .NET developer, Total .NET SourceBook will increase your productivity. While there is lots of code available on the Internet, finding quality code that is properly commented and tested is still challenging. The code in Total .NET SourceBook 2005 can be trusted and pays for itself the first time a developer uses it to overcome a hurdle, then the rest of the code is essentially 'free'."

Availability and Pricing

Total .NET SourceBook 2005 is available immediately from FMS and many resellers. Pricing is $399 per developer and includes royalty-free distribution rights for including the source code from Total .NET SourceBook. Our code web service, which provides additional code, is available for an additional $199 annually. Existing owners of Total .NET SourceBook can upgrade for only $299.
