Short answer: No, it is not possible.

Web forms separate their UI from their code, so you will have a .aspx and a .aspx.cs page.  Furthermore, windows controls come out of the System.Forms namespace and web controls come out of the System.Web namespace.

There are ways to share logic between windows and web, but there is no magic switch you can flip to make them work on both sides.



You can take a look at Converting WinForms => Web Forms using CodeDom

If you dont want to convert whole application into asp.net (web starndard), you can create ActiveX of your this form and can easily embed into asp.net pages.

here is an example/tutorial (see accepted answer and other views)

Hello yahyooz

If you are looking to create fields based upon a data source, have a look here:

http://www.asp.net/mvc
http://www.csharp-station.com/Tutorial.aspx

It is a learning curve, because as has been said before, you cannot convert a windows form to a web form directly.

The above link points you to a technology called MVC, this will help you to achieve your goal. There are tutorial videos in the link which will greatly help you.

The second link is there in case you are unfamiliar with C# which is the programming language you will need to use MVC.

Thank you very much,

Richard Hughes
