Windows Forms Controls in the .NET Compact Framework
The .NET Compact Framework System.Windows.Forms classes are optimized for size and performance and use device resources judiciously. Most of the familiar and popular controls for Windows applications are available. You also can derive controls or create custom controls in your applications.
The .NET Compact Framework supports common Windows functionality including z-ordering, focus, activation, capture, overlapping, and parent-child relationships. Resource-intensive features, such as enumerations and events that are not appropriate for device applications, are not implemented.
