Summary: In this video we will continue our discussion of the inventory
tracking windows application. We will start with the About Box. We will add the
form to the project, add a menu item under Help menu and tie the menu item to
the form. Now when we click the menu item, the About Box is displayed. The
important part though is how the form is getting its information. When we
investigate the code, we will find that the properties are retrieving the
running assembly and querying the assembly to get the title, version...
Next, we will discuss exiting the
application. The user can exit the application either through the exit menu
item, or through the x button on the top right corner. The reason I am bringing
this up is that we will be implementing the form closing event to give the user
the option of undoing the exit and keeping the application running.
of the development of example: Good coding standard
and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
