All my development so far has been building Webs.

Is there a good walk through for building a multi page (form) WinForms Application?

Can you explain more what you mean by "multi page"?  Do you want to know how to navigate between forms?  Have multiple forms open at the same time?  Have multiple child forms open in a parent form? etc...  WinForms is a different beast than WebForms.

With all due respect to Pagod NaUtak, do not use the link he provided.

That stuff was written in 2001, 7 months before the first version of Visual Studio .NET came to the market.

That means that the book from which it come was written before that, and it shows. This even look like something we did before Visual Studio was available, when we used Notepad to "play" with the framework.

You create Windows Forms (we are working with forms, not with pages) basically the same way you create web pages. The main difference is that you will find that you have complete liberty in the placement of controls, there are a lot more controls, and you will get 3 to 4 times the number of events that you had in web applications.

You will find all the information you need at the Microsoft site http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229598.aspx
