Video Summary

Windows Forms are the basis of most application user interfaces. The forms provide a design surface that you can use to create an entire application, such as a Web browser, or a small part of an application, such as a message box.

This video shows you how to create a simple application that presents a date selector, and displays the date you select in a label on the form. The following tasks are included in the process:

  • How to create a project in C++.

  • How to create a user interface.

  • How to add C++ code to make the application work.

  • How to build and run your application.

The Visual C++ Help includes the code and the steps that are demonstrated in this video. See Creating a Windows Forms Application By Using the .NET Framework (C++).
