Visual Studio 2012 Beta - Enhanced Windows Forms?

Hi

I just downloaded the beta for Visual Studio 2010 and it looks like the Windows forms haven't really changed. Does anyone know if there are any toolkits within the product to make the forms look better?

Thanks

Do you mean Visual Studio 11 Beta? MS dropped the year version and returned to a numbered version.

>>and it looks like the Windows forms haven't really changed

FYI, Windows Forms are almost dead. They won't disappear as too many developpers rely on them but they won't evolve greatly. Microsoft is pushing har on other UI presentation like WPF, SilverLight and now HTML5.

You should have a look at WPF.

As far as I know not. What exactly do you want to do with your forms ?
