Windows Forms Using C#
Rev. 4.0
.NET Training Overview

This five-day course provides a practical, hands-on introduction to GUI development using Windows Forms and C#. The course introduces database programming in Windows, including use of Language Integrated Query (LINQ). The course covers powerful newer Windows Forms features, such as controls, data binding, and ClickOnce deployment for creating smart client applications. It covers interoperability with the next-generation Windows client framework, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

The course begins with a fundamental discussion of Windows Forms architecture and programming simple Windows Forms applications “from scratch.” Then the use of Visual Studio 2010 and the Forms Designer is introduced, which is used throughout the remainder of the course. Simple controls are covered, such as buttons, labels, textboxes, checkboxes, radio buttons and group boxes. List controls are surveyed, including list box, combo box, list view, and DomainUpDown. Dialogs are discussed in detail, including modal and modeless dialogs and associated controls. Menus, toolbars and status bars are covered.

Advanced topics are introduced, including parent/child and owner/owned relationships, programming the Clipboard, visual inheritance, the BackgroundWorker component, and ClickOnce deployment. Advanced controls are introduced, including the tree view, tab control and SpliltContainer. Resources are discussed, including their use in localization. The Application class is covered. Applications settings are discussed, including use of configuration files and the Registry. Data access and data binding are covered. The course concludes with a chapter on Windows Forms and WPF interoperation.

Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided. The student will receive a comprehensive set of notes and all the programming examples.
