Good books/videos on OOD & Principles

I am looking to get more basic fundamental training and understanding of OOP/OOD. I was never really formally trained in this concept and would like to find some good material that I could study. For example, what and when would be the proper time to use RadioButtons/CheckBoxes...things like this. I need to get a good understanding of when to use certain controls. What are they're proper applications. I'm an old dog but believe old dogs CAN learn new tricks!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
