I am using arcgis from last 3 years. but it was only limited by button pressing.

Can you suggest me some reference books?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I find that Beginning ArcGIS for Desktop Development Using .Net (Publisher) to be useful. They break down the operations into decent little exercises that are fairly practical. Plus, you can download their code from the website.

Other Suggestions If you are better with Java, you can also do ArcObjects in that language, too. I don't believe there is much support for VBA anymore. I think that was mostly MapObjects.

You might find that learning python and ArcPy to be a good starting point to get the flow of ESRI processes.
