The sample solution contains two projects. The CustomerLibrary project defines several business classes, including Customers, Orders, and CustomerManager. The CustomerManager class creates instances of these classes. Those instances are displayed in the client project.

In the Form Designer, two BindingSource controls are created that link the business objects to the business classes. The controls on the form are then bound to BindingSource controls. For more information, see How to: Connect to Data in an Object.
