A Beginner's Guide to C-Sharp-CH11: Calling secondary Forms - Make your program a multi-form program the right way (ABGC)


Chapter 11 (86 pages) shows how to open or call secondary forms in your program. The chapter shows both the wrong ways (as commonly-seen on the Internet), as well as the right ways, with all the details and reasons explained in clear, concise language.

Topics: Opening a secondary form, re-opening with global variables, intercepting a Form-Close event, Returning to the calling form using an "Instance-Ref", Modal and Modeless Forms Top-most forms.

Then the chapter moves into an important concept: How to properly pass values between forms, using proper object-oriented techniques. Passing variables through Signatures and using Constructors.

Finally, Microsoft neglected to provide a good MessageBox dialog. In this chapter you will build a robust and *attractive* dialog, that can be used in any program. Microsoft also neglected to provide an Input-box dialog. Once again, this chapter comes to the rescue. Write both dialogs one time, then re-use in any program using the Class-Libraries techniques from Chapter 8.
