MORE ABOUT THE COURSE
Visual Studio and C#, is a very powerful combination, that allows Software Developers to develop a wide range of useful applications. With Windows Forms, you can create user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications, that efficiently interact with the end users and perform different tasks fast and easy.
Knowing how to develop in Visual Studio, using the C# Programming Language and Windows Forms, is a very important skill. I have been working with these types of projects for over 15 years and via this course, I'm sharing my expertise, as well as useful tips towards an efficient programming style, when developing Windows Forms projects in Visual Studio.
Via my course ".NET Programming for Beginners: Windows Forms (C#)", you will get introduced to Windows Forms programming, using Visual Studio and the C# Programming Language.
Through the introductory section, you will learn what Windows Forms are, what is their architecture, about Visual Studio as a Integrated Development Environment (IDE), as well as, we will see a demo of the Text Editor demo app, that we will be developing throughout the course.
Then, you will learn the basics of Windows Forms, such as controls and event handling. After that, we will talk more about event handling, and how you can provide a richer interaction between your application and the end user, by combining events.
Multithreading is also a very important aspect in Windows Forms programming. To this end, you will learn what is multithreading and how you can easily implement it in your .NET Windows Forms projects, using the BackgroundWorker component.
After you complete the development of a software application using .NET Windows Forms, the next step is to distribute it using a deployment package. I have included a relevant section in the course, via which you will learn, how to easily create deployment packages for your .NET Windows Forms applications, which among other, enable your applications to be self-updating.
Last but not least, you will learn how to connect to SQL Server and retrieve data into a DataGridView control on your Windows Form, as well as, how to update back the SQL Server database via your Form.
AFTER THE COURSE:
You will know what Windows Forms (WinForms) projects are in .NET Framework and Visual Studio.
You will know how to create Windows Forms projects in Visual Studio and build Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications using C#.
You will know how to implement event handling and multithreading in your .NET Windows Forms projects.
You will know how to create deployment packages for your .NET applications using the ClickOnce component in Visual Studio.
You will be able to connect your Windows Forms .NET application to SQL Server and retrieve data.
Basic computer programming principles and fundamentals
