Hi all,

I have a Windows Form Application with a single form,
and I got rid of all the controls on it.
What is the best way to convert my project to Console Application?

Any help is appreciated,

Thank you

why would you do that? if you just want to run your application from a scheduler, it does not require to be console.

otherwise, start a new application using the console template and move the files you need

Your forms code gets initiated thru either the Constructor, Load() or Shown() event.  Just move that code to the Main() method of your Console application (along with any supporting methods/functions).

If it's more complicated than that then please show us the code in question.

Create a new project, add existing items for all your classes.
Copy all your logic (code) from the Form to the program.cs.

If any events have to be taken care of, you'll probably need to add some logic to the console application.

If it's not big, it would be easier if we saw at least the structure of the code.

I was hoping for some magic, like a tweak in a project file or something like that.
I guess not.
Thank you all
