What Does Visual Studio .NET Mean?
Visual Studio .NET is a Microsoft-integrated development environment (IDE) that can be used for developing consoles, graphical user interfaces (GUIs), Windows Forms, Web services and Web applications.
Visual Studio is used to write native code and managed code supported by Microsoft Windows, Windows Mobile, Windows CE, .NET Framework, .NET Compact Framework and Microsoft Silverlight. Visual Studio .NET’s code editor supports IntelliSense and code refactoring, while the Visual Studio .NET integrated debugger supports both source and machine-level debugging. Visual Studio .NET includes other built-in tools, like a form designer, which is useful when building GUI applications; a Web designer that creates dynamic Web pages; a class designer that is used to create custom libraries, and a schema designer for database support.
