Hi all,

I would like to make a windows forms executable that is controlled by web services, so e.g. the SOAP Messages sent to the web service can be then sent to the GUI. Preferably in C# (.Net 2005).
I know how to create web services and I know how to create windows applications, but the combination does not seem to be possible...

Could someone please give me some pointers on how I could make an windows executable controlled by a web service?

Thanks,
jon

Instead of having the web service relay the message to the GUI why not host the web service itself inside the EXE?

If you dont want to go that route the most efficent way for the web service to communicate with the applicatino is using .NET remoting.
