Winforms and objects

Hi All,

Is there a good book or paper on conceptualizing Winforms as objects?
In object-oriented programming I don't find it diffiucult to see
"student", "person", or "car" as objects, but I do have problems
conceptualizing a "form" and controls on forms as objects and how they
fit together. Is there anything specifically on dealing with forms
while maintaining the OO model and design in C#?

Thanks much,

Mike

Mike,

The best book I've found on WinForms is Chris Sells book, "Windows Forms
Programming in C#". It is part of the MS .Net Development Series. It
addresses some of your questions, but not necessarily in an OOP discussion,
but in the way it talks about forms/controls as objects, what happens in the
constructor etc. I'm working on a VERY large winforms application right now,
and it has paid for itself many times over.
