Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing drag-and-drop UI design, part of Visual Studio 2010 Essential Training.
One of the major advantages of designing UI in Visual Studio is the drag-…and-drop placement of elements during the design of both rich client and web applications.…These elements are all available in what is known as the ToolBox.…I am inside Visual Studio, and I've opened a solution, appropriately called ToolBox.…Inside this solution, I have three separate projects:…an ASP.NET project, a Windows Form project, and a WPF project.…The reason I picked these three project types is all three of them support a…drag and drop designer.…
I am going to start by looking at the Windows Form App.…I'm going to open this up, and I am going to find this file called Form1.cs.…I'm going to double-click on it.…That will load what's called the designer into this central area of my screen.…Now I can go to the Toolbox, which currently on my machine is down here on this tab.…If you don't see it, you may need to go to the View menu as a View toolbox.…It also may be docked to the edge.…In that case, you need to go over here and click the Auto Hide button to make it visible.…

Q: Which edition of Visual Studio 2010 do I need to follow along in this course?
A: The course is taught with Visual Studio 2010 Professional, but can also be used with the Premium or Ultimate editions. The Express editions of Visual Studio, including Visual Basic 2010 Express, Visual C# 2010 Express, and Visual C++ Express, are not covered in this course.
Q: I'm attempting to download the exercise files for this course, and my virus protection is blocking me from unzipping the downloaded file. Are the files corrupted?
A: The alert is a false-positive message. Your antivirus software is detecting the active code included in the exercise files, which in some ways resembles viral code. There is nothing to be alarmed about and you can ignore the warning. This is common among coding courses and environments.
