Advanced Windows Forms Applications


In this chapter, you’ve encountered many of the more powerful controls available to the Win Forms developer. You started off with a couple of views and then moved on to container controls. Next, you looked at the strip controls ToolStrip, StatusStrip, and MenuStrip. Then, to finish off the coverage of controls, you took a look at some of the more fun controls available. After your whirlwind tour of controls, you ended Windows Form development with examining dialog boxes.

You should now be able to build a commercial-grade GUI interface that will impress all of your peers.

In the next chapter, you’ll continue to examine the GUI interface provided by the .NET Framework class library, but this time you’ll look at working with things such as fonts and prebuilt images, and drawing your own images from scratch.
