Now, take a deep breath: what you are about to hear is not an insult. Everyone here was a beginner ... once.

Your question suggests, to me, that you are very new to programming, and pretty confused about what a Windows Form Application is.

A Console Application and a Windows Forms Application are totally different.

Yes, a Console is a "window," and it's the only run-time surface/canvas/window the user can interact with. It has a built-in processing loop read-evaluate-print triggered by your hitting the Enter key.

A Windows Form Application has (typically, by default) a Main Window, and the programmer can create as many other Windows (Forms) as they wish. Closing the Main Window will close all the other open Forms. Each Form, when it has focus, gets connected to the Windows message-pump that sends it keystrokes, mouse-actions, etc. Which Control on a given Form "receives" these messages will vary depending on the Control, and the context.

Sometimes people get confused because in a Windows Forms Application, you can cause text output to be written to the 'Output window in Visual Studio by using code like this:

Console.WriteLine("current value: {0}", currentValue);

There's a good free book, "DotNet Zero" by Charles Petzold you can download here: [^].

Once you have gotten an initial mastery of the Console Application, I suggest you get a book on Windows Forms; I think the (older, but still good) books by Jesse Liberty and Matthew McDonald are excellent.

cheers, Bill

We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
