    Presentation Overview

    Win Forms is a new forms package that enables developers building Windows-based applications to take full advantage of the rich user interface features available in the Microsoft Windows® operating system. Win Forms is part of the new Microsoft® .NET platform and leverages many new technologies, including a common application framework, managed execution environment, integrated security, and object-oriented design principles.

    Shawn's talk will cover the basic organization of Win Forms, including:

    * Building forms & user controls

    * Creating rich layout

    * Custom painting with GDI+

    * Using delegates vs. overriding methods

    * Using metadata attributes

    * Accessing the underlying operating system
