C# C# Basics (Retired) Prepare and Plan Program Structure

Is there a video tutorial on C# for Visual Studio, but for Windows Form Applications instead of Console?

I need help with writing code for C# making Business Form Applications - using variables, if and else statements, loops, switch, radio buttons and list boxes.

There's an entire course here for that: ASP.NET MVC Forms.

Have you seen it yet? You'll still need to be familiar with C# fundamentals. The first course element has a list of prerequisites you should probably do first, but the good news is one of them is the course you're doing now.

Jaclyn Schneider, are you referring to Windows Forms desktop applications? We don't have any courses on that yet. We focus on Web development because that's where the jobs are.

There are two main ways to create Windows desktop applications with C#: Windows Forms and WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation). The former is fine for simple utility-like applications. The latter is better for more complex applications that look professional. There are lots of resources on the Web to learn how to build both. They'll all require having a good understanding of C# though.

You learn console first because then you can focus on C# itself.
