Hour 7. Working with Windows Forms


Windows Forms are a new concept for Visual C++ developers. They represent the user interface for standard Windows applications written with the .NET Framework. Applications no longer construct the user interface directly by creating windows using the standard Win32 APIs or MFC equivalents. Instead, the .NET Framework supplies the higher Windows Forms API, which provides a complete set of objects for building application user interfaces.

In this hour's lesson, you will learn how to create and work with Windows Forms using Visual C++ .NET.

Specifically, in this hour you will:

  • Create and display a basic Windows Form

  • Create an MDI frame window with Windows Forms

  • Create a menu and toolbar for the MDI frame window

  • Create and display an MDI child window with controls

  • Create and use a simple dialog box
