Creating Windows Forms Applications (Visual C#) 

Windows Forms is the technology that you use in Visual C# to create Windows-based smart client applications that run on the .NET Framework. When you create a Windows Application project, you are creating an application based on Windows Forms. You will use the Windows Forms Designer to create your user interface, and you will have access to other design and run-time features including:

  • ClickOnce Deployment.

  • Rich database support with the DataGridView Control.

  • Toolbars and other user interface elements that can have the appearance and behavior of Microsoft® Windows® XP, Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
