Windows Forms Example

Jan 27, 2011 at 11:26 AM


first of all thanks a lot for the articles on codeproject and this really awesome example-project. But I was wondering if you could show this with a windows forms application as a client or even a client based on the Compact Framework. The WPF-stuff is really neat and clean, but unfortunately Windows Forms does not offer that much cool functionality when it comes to DataBinding.

thanks for the feedback. I have not used Windows Forms in a production application since 2005, I am not sure if I would like to see it again after using WPF. Do you mind if I ask, Why Windows Forms and not WPF?.

thanks for responding. I'm developing a client which gets deployed in an Windows XP Embedded environment and another client targeted for Windows Mobile 5 - 6.5. The lack of support for WPF in the Compact Framework unfortunately forces me to use Windows Forms. I would like to have a similar look and feel in both clients.
