not school work-
can i turn this console C# program into a program using a windows form?
if possible- any first ideas as to how to go about it?
program asks for salaries-
then sums them up with array and a for loop-
i have a more complicated program to convert- but do not understand how to have for loop and array in a gui form
thank you
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace test1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            
            int i;
            int[] salary = new int[10];
            int sumofsalary = 0;
            
            for (i = 0;i <=4; i++)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("enter salary of Employee: {0}", i + 1);
                salary[i] = Int32.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
            }
            for (i = 0; i <= 4; i++)
            {
                sumofsalary = sumofsalary + salary[1];
            }
            Console.WriteLine("total salary given to employees is = " + sumofsalary);

The Console app stops at ReadLine() and waits for input...giving just one path thru the app.

In a WinForms app you'd place a TextBox on the Form for entry, and a Button to initiate the action.  You could use a Label to display the results.

When the button is pressed it generates a Click() event that the Form subscribes to.  So you'd put the "meat" of the code into the Click() handler and then update the Label with the result...

*You'd have to make a design-decision, supply ONE TextBox and track the number of entries with each Button click.
...or use multiple TextBoxes, one for each slot in the array.
...or use a DataGrid type control instead.

What you'll have to do is:
1) Create a form that would prompt for the values you need to compute
2) Then, from your main, you'll make these calls:
Form myfrm = new MyForm(); // where MyForm is the name of your form from step 1
myfrm.ShowDialog();

Until you physically close the form, you app will not quit.

If you want to pass in your command line arguments to the form, make sure that your form's constructor can handle your arguments and then just call new MyForm (args);

Hope this helps.
