Last sentence on page.

"Note if the base class was written in VB.NET, it would be marked friend, as shown in Example 6-6. This would mean that if the derived for were in the same project as the base class, the button would be inaccessible." End of last sentence should be, "..the button would be accessible."

Size Struct

The 4th Size method lists an operator overload method with a character that didn't print correctly. The chart even includes the error text ***NOTE TO PROD: CHARACTERS DIDNT' TRANSLATE*** The character should be a minus sign, so the correct line is: public static Size operator -(Size sz1, Size sz2);
