    [RESOLVED] [.net 2.0] Visual C# Equivalent of CWnd

    Preface -- I'm a C# novice so some of my terminology might be incorrect here.

    Does C# have an equivalent of MFC's CWnd? Several of the functions I want to perform I need to do via calls the win api functions. It seems that some win api functions were built into CWnd. If C# has an equivalent I would prefer to use that.

    Thanks. Any insight is appreciated.

    C# and MFC are totally different things. There is no use of MFC in C# But the Form we are using in C# ( which have some similarity to old VB forms ) have a lot of Properties and methods so if you would define what you are wanting to do, maybe we can give you some hints how to design it in C#.
    Best way to start with C# is
    1) Forget all what you have done in C++
    2) Take an easy book about C# and go through all this chapters
    this will bring you a totally new viewpoint of designing an
    application, events, generics, interfaces, ...
    The approach to do things is totally different.

    Although in C++ onw would use CWnd to create a Windows form, in C# the concept is little different. We have Forms in .NET world, so you would want to see how Windows Applications are built in C# on MSDN.

    The simplest way to see how this is done in C# is to use VS 2005 or 2008 and create a new WindowsFprms Application. The first Form is done for you and you can change it for example to an MDI Form by simple changing the properties.

    Hi Suja and Jonny,

    Thanks for the insight. I think I'll buy a book.

    Kind regards.
