    Intro WinForms

    The course .NET GUI Development with WinForms starts with a discussion of the structure of WinForms projects and the desktop layout in Visual Studio. The application class and the Windows Forms designer are also discussed.

    WinForms Fundamentals

    Then the fundamental elements of WinForms applications such as menus, panels, controls and the status bar are covered. And event handling is also treated.


    Next attention is paid to reusable libraries in .NET WinForms applications and how their assemblies are referenced in projects. The data collection classes and other class libraries are covered.


    In the GUI interface of WinForms applications, many controls are used that allow users to perform interactions. Discussed are buttons, text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons and list boxes as well as the associated events.


    The many ready-made dialog windows from the WinForms library are then treated, including various message boxes and the common file dialogs OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog. The difference between modal and modeless dialogues is also discussed.


    Views make up the user interface in WinForms applications. Attention is paid to various standard views in WinForms such as the Tab Pages view, the List view, Tree view and Grid Views.

    Drawing and Scrolling

    Next it is explained how images can be drawn and displayed in WinForms applications and how scrolling of views with scroll bars can be implemented.

    MDI Forms

    Both Single and Multiple Document Interfaces (MDI) interfaces are covered. And attention is paid to MDI child forms.

    Data Binding

    Finally, data binding is discussed, in which the contents of user interface elements, such as a data grid, are linked to the values of variables in the application. Database connectivity with ADO.NET, SQL and LinQ is covered as well.
