Default VB.Net tutorial / mini application

Is there a book or site which offers a mini/complete VB.Net application? I have been developing code in Clipper for many years, and can sense some of the concepts offered in the Beginning VB.NET 2003 book. But, I hope to find a basically complete tutorial/application so I can more quickly figure out how all of this comes together.

I would like something which takes input from the user and writes it to a database, takes data from the database and displays it to the screen or a report. etc....

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

VB.NET is really robust, so there is a lot to learn! I believe you would be best off just reading through the text, and working all the samples. (Sorry to say.)

Taking input from a user usually involves validation, type-checking, and so on. Once the input is accepted, the atoms of input will need to be disbursed to the database properly.

Showing data often involves checking for valid acces to the data, and then the inverse of what is required to receive the data in the 1st place.

There is just no way to do an “Off-the-shelf” solution to this sort of thing. (If there was, we programmers would quickly be out of a job!)
