New to Windows Application

I've only been doing ASP.Net/VB.Net (and some C#) coding. Now I need to develop a .Net Windows Application. Been googling for tutorials and I just find an article here and an article there.

Any good tutorials someone can send me?

I have questions like: can I use StyleSheet in a WinForm app? When do I use a MDIParent? If I have one form, user clicks OK ...how can I close this form and open another form? etc...

I suggest you www.codeproject.com
You will find lots of examples with full source code and explanations about C#, vb.net in both WinForms and WebForms

For your specific questions:
>> can I use StyleSheet in a WinForm app?
Yes, you can do it by using a WebBrowser control inside your winform. Look for DHTML articles
>> When do I use a MDIParent?
when you have multiple documents or multiple views inside your application. Look to MDI articles
>If I have one form, user clicks OK ...how can I close this form and open another form?
Just launch the new form with Show() instead of ShowDialog() and close your first form.

So I cant use the stylesheet to , for example, size a form?

Not easily. Maybe you can tweak a IE window. But this is not a common practice.

Well, this approach is not the best to migrate. You will have to learn winforms.
But if you know nothing, maybe you can take the choice to migrate directly to WPF/Silverlight technologies instead.

WPF and Silverlight...i saw something about it on www.asp.net but didnt look into.

We have a vendor app that's done in a language that's similar to VB4 and it's windows app.. I developed part of it in ASP.Net for our customers.. Was thinking about doing the entire pacakage in winform/.net and replace the old vendor app.

Will look into Silverlight.
