Adding New Form to Project - Windows Form Application C using Macbook

0 votes

Background information on what I already got: I'm working on a product called RunTotal. I have one form called Form1 in the project, which comprises textboxes, labels, and one button.

What I'm trying to achieve is for this new form to open when the user clicks the button inside Form1.

I have my MacBook partitioned so I can run both Windows and MacOS. I'm not sure if it's because of the partition, but I'm having difficulties adding another Windows Form Application to my project in Visual Studio.

So here are my inquiries:

  1. Is there a specific type of form I require because I came across something concerning inheritance while doing research? Do I need a special type since I'm trying to open this new form when a button on the one I already have is pressed?
  2. How do you create a new form because I can't find a new Windows Form Application anyplace when I try to add a new file

To add a new form to your application, you don't need to create a new Windows Form Application. Typically, your application's default form is Form1.

enter image description here

Then right click and do this

Now, add form by selecting Windows Form

enter image description here

Set the event for the button in Form1 to something like this

    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        var form2 = new Form2();
        form2.Show();

    }

If you want to interact with both forms, use form2.Show(); otherwise, use form2. ShowDialog() is used to stall the caller form until it is closed.
