Has Microsoft documented on the naming convention for windows and web controls like they did for Classes.

How to programmatically add controls to Windows forms at run time by using Visual C#

Create a Windows Forms Application
Start Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio 2005 or a later version, and create a new Visual C# Windows Application project named WinControls. Form1 is added to the project by default.
Double-click Form1 to create and view the Form1_Load event procedure.
Add private instance variables to the Form1 class to work with common Windows controls. The Form1 class starts as follows:

Text Rendering: Build World-Ready Apps Using Complex Scripts In Windows Forms Controls


The System.Windows.Forms.TextRenderer class provides support for complex scripts in Windows Forms controls so you can render text the way you want and support international locales.

Visual Studio .NET: Building Windows Forms Controls and Components with Rich Design-Time Features, P


This is the second of two articles discussing the extremely rich design-time features of the .NET Framework. Part 1 discussed the basics, showing you where to start and how to extend your control implementation through attributes and interfaces, as well as their effects on the property browser, code serialization, and other controls. Part 2 continues the journey by concentrating on design-time functionality that you can implement beyond your components and controls, including TypeConverters, UITypeEditors, and Designers. It would be impossible to cover everything you can do in two short articles, which is a testament to just how all-encompassing and flexible the design-time capability of the .NET Framework is.

Advanced Basics: Windows Forms Controls


Build a control that allows the user to drag and drop other controls onto the new control at run time, and allow the user to move the control around on a form, all in Visual Basic.

Visual Studio .NET: Building Windows Forms Controls and Components with Rich Design-Time Features


Visual Studio .NET provides support for designing rich features into your controls and components, allowing you to set properties, set form placement, inherit from base classes, and much more. So how does Visual Studio .NET do all this? What does the Windows Forms designer do? What's the difference between a control and a component? How does Visual Studio integrate your controls so that they can access features of the .NET Framework?In this article, the authors answer these common questions by building a clock control and taking the reader along for the ride. In building the control, hosts and containers are illustrated, the property browser is explained, debugging is discussed, and a general overview of the design-time infrastructure is presented.

Windows Forms: Developing Compelling User Controls that Target Forms in the .NET Framework


In the beginning, writing controls meant dealing with Windows messages. Then came Visual Basic controls, which introduced methods, properties, and events. Later, ActiveX controls, which ran atop COM, became popular. While each innovation in control writing brought more flexibility, nothing has matched the versatility of the new .NET Windows Forms controls and Web Forms controls. This article, the first of a two-part series, introduces the reader to Windows Forms, beginning with their inheritance from one of the .NET CLR base classes, which makes control creation much faster than before. Control programming is illustrated through the development of a login control. The equally flexible Web Forms controls will be covered in Part 2.

Adding windows forms controls to the display of list items



I'm new to Sharepoint development, and was wondering if I could get some brief pointers to get me going in the right direction.  I'm required to add a button to list items that on submit does some manipulation of the data in the fields inside the item and then sends that data off to an external webservice.  The complexity is sufficient to warrant managed code, i.e. C#.

What I'd like to know is how to approach integrating this code into Sharepoint.  I've read about web parts, but viewing list items doesn't involve web part pages on my installation so I can't include my own.  What other ways are there of doing this?

Cheers all

Exposing Windows Forms as ActiveX controls



We need support for the following problem. We have an application implemented in .NET (C# language) technology.

This is a Windows Forms application using a MDI (multiple document interface) style. We are trying to expose the

whole application as an ActiveX control in order to be integrated into a Java-based user interface.

It seems that this is not possible because:

-          A Multiple-document interface (MDI) parent form must be a top-level window [1].

-          Top-level Windows Forms control cannot be exposed

Scroll/Zoom Windows.Forms.Panel controls


Is there some "thumbnail" or other "easy" way to provide the ability to have a populated panel of UserControl derived objects and scrollbar "move" them and "middle mouse zoom" them on the Client area of the panel?

I am using net FrameWork 4.0  The documentation leaves a tantilizing trail and I sure it can be done, but I do not want to miss something so simple like using the Thumbnail/bitmap/Background properties or methods of the Panel control? 

Thanks Everyone



Tab Order of user controls on windows forms / dialog


Dear all,

I have user controls on the windows form/dialog.

I find that the tab order of controls, e.g. textbox, in the user controls are ignored.

How to make the tab order in user controls follow??

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

How to Localize Windows Forms and Change the Language at Runtime

Localization is the process of customizing your application to a particular language, culture or locale. Visual Studio provides support for localizing Windows Forms with much ease. In this article, we will see how to localize windows forms and give the user the ability to change to his preferred language at runtime.
When you run a localized application, the appearance is determined by two culture values. The UICulture property is used to specify which resource files will be loaded for the form. The Culture property, on the other hand, determines how strings such as dates, numerals, and currency amounts are formatted.
Let us see the steps required to create a localized form. You can then expand this example and adopt the same approach for the rest of the forms in your project

Localizing Windows Forms

The Visual Studio project system provides considerable support for localizing Windows Forms applications. There are two ways to generate resource files using the Visual Studio development environment: one is to have the project system generate the resource files for localizable UI elements such as text and images on the form. The resource files are then built into satellite assemblies. The second way is to add a resource file template and then edit the template with the XML Designer. A reason for doing the latter is to make localizable strings that appear in dialog boxes and error messages. You must then write code to access these resources.

This walkthrough topic demonstrates both processes in a single Windows Application project.

You can also convert a text file to a resource file; for more information, see Resources in Text File Format and Resource File Generator (Resgen.exe).
