WinForm Pizzazz Into Regular DLL

P: n/a
Tom
Hi all -- this is my first posting here and I want to start by saying
thank you to all the responders. I have done some searching and
reading and have learned a few things I didn't even know to enough
about to ask! This group rocks!! :)

I am hoping to find a guru who knows how to relate to a beginner. I am
using VS2005 Academic version and am just now learning WinForms. They
are awesome. I have almost zero MFC experience and I am hoping to leap
past MFC and utilize WinForms extensively.

I have a small and self written Win32 DLL that uses _stdcall and .DEF
export file to interact with another application.

As a HUGE DLL improvement, I'd like to learn how to incorporate the
WinForm functionality of a simple "Hello World" WinForm Project into
the above mentioned DLL. Then I'd be able to slowly add functionality
to the WinForm and accelerate my learning curve greatly. I recently
learned how to incorporate a console into the DLL ... but I want the
pizzazz of a WinForm.

I know this is not a simple task ... because I have done a lot of
online searching in an attempt to discover a good tutorial or
discussions about this task. I know there are a lot of #includes and
using statements that are needed. And some compiler settings too.

I have read the Deitel's - "Visual C++ .NET How To Program" a few
times through and there are still some major gaps in my programming
ability.

Thus I am hoping someone can give me some good entry level how to
instructions.

Please get me started and I'll post my efforts along this journey.

Thanks!
