How-to and Walkthrough Directory

In addition to code examples found in the .NET Framework Class Library, most non-reference documentation in the .NET Framework section of the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) is interspersed with topics containing example code that demonstrates how to accomplish a particular task ("How-to" topics). Several technology sections also contain topics that describe, in sequence, a set of related tasks required to complete a larger scenario ("Walkthrough" topics).

This directory is designed to enable you to quickly locate these code examples for a particular technology area.
