Control Events

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

In computer programming, event-driven programming is a programming paradigm in which the flow of the execution of a program is determined by events such as user actions (mouse clicks, key presses), sensor outputs, or messages from other programs/threads.

Because C# is also an event-driven programming language, today we will learn about events.… Read more

Control Properties

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

At some point in my lessons, I was discussing how a class (object) can have properties and methods. I was also saying that the Controls that we are adding to our GUI’s are actually also objects (classes). Therefor, as you might have guessed, the graphical controls of our interfaces have control properties, through which we can customize their parameters.… Read more

Though it is not this website’s purpose to teach XAML, and though programmers can develop a program’s interface almost entirely without knowing XAML, in this lesson I will talk briefly about what XAML is, what does it look like, what it does and how we can use it.… Read more

Graphical User Interface (GUI)

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

As explained in this lesson, we will create a new project, but this time we will not be using a console application template, but rather a WPF one, for the purpose of creating a graphical user interface (GUI) program. As explained in the yesterday lesson, there are more than one ways in which we can create GUI programs, but some of them are harder, or obsolete.… Read more

WPF

Back in the day, in the golden days of prehistoric programming (~’80’s), programmers were writing programs that would only display text. Graphics were rare and hideous, and the majority of computer programs were as basics as it gets. Here is a screenshot of Lotus 123, which was a spreadsheet program used for financial jobs:

Up to this point, all the lessons I have taught you were exemplified using the same command line interface (CLI).… Read more
