1. Hello, Windows Forms

AS EASY TO USE AS WINDOWS FORMS is, the sheer amount of functionality it provides can make it intimidating—especially when combined with the huge number of features in Visual Studio 2005 (VS05) solely for the purpose of building Windows Forms code. This chapter takes a quick look at Windows Forms, including forms, controls, application settings, resources, dialogs, drawing, printing, data binding, threading, and even deployment over the web. We also look at how the VS05 integrated development environment (IDE) facilitates Windows Forms development. The remaining chapters will stuff you full, providing the sumptuous details of these topics, but in this chapter, you'll get your first taste.
