Basic Windows Forms Applications


Console applications are fine for quick utilities and testing functionality, but Windows applications really shine when they present a graphical user interface (GUI) to the world. With the release of Visual Studio 2005, Microsoft continued to extend its “easy-to-build” initiative for C++/CLI Windows applications. It became effortless to drag and drop your complete user interface using the built-in design tool provided by Visual Studio. Adding event handling to these GUI components is a breeze as well—all it requires is a double-click at design time on the component.
