Multiple pages in windows forms (windows Apps VS2008)
Posted on 2008-06-15
I am new to making windows apps with VS2008 (have experience with web apps).
How would I make an app have multiple pages without using a new form window.
For example, I have two buttons on my windows app - read details and enter details: I want to display different layouts/textboxes etc. for each 'page'.
I have so far managed this with panels and setting them to hide and unhide on user clicks but it is almost impossible to work with this is VS as there is no way to hide the panels (that I can find) in design mode. So if I am working with 10 pannels it gets very messy and confusing.
I have also used 'tabs' to create individual pages but I dont want a tabbed layout.
Many thanks in advance.
