Software Design Using C++

Intermediate Windows Forms Applications

Visual Studio .NET allows you to create what is called a Windows Forms Application. This can be a quick way to produce a Windows application with a graphical user interface. Elsewhere in these web pages we have mostly been using console applications, which have a simple text mode interface. The Windows Forms Applications can be more interesting and also more friendly to use, but we will have to expend a little more effort to set them up. In this section we look at Windows Forms Apps for which we have to write some code, though the code will not be too complicated.

All of the examples in this section and the two related sections were created and tested with Visual Studio .NET 2003. They should also work in Visual Studio .NET 2005.
