The articles have been arranged based on the total views from top to bottom. I hope you enjoy reading them, as much as we did while compiling them!!
DataGridView control is a Windows Forms control that gives you the ability to customize and edit tabular data. It gives you number of properties, methods and events to customize its appearance and behavior. In this article, we will discuss some frequently asked questions and their solutions. These questions have been collected from a variety of sources including some newsgroups, MSDN site and a few, answered by me at the MSDN forums
The System.Drawing.Text.InstalledFontCollection is a non-inheritable class that contains the functionality to represent the fonts installed on the system. You can use this class and return an array containing the names of all the fonts on your system. In this article, let us see how to use this class and display the list of available fonts
With the MSDN forums flooded with similar questions, I decided to dedicate an article for the subject. In this article, we will create two forms, a parent and a child and then open the child form using the Parent Form. When the child form closes, we will close the Parent form too.

This article was written simply out of curiosity. I was doing a similar operation using web technologies and just wanted to try out how it works with Windows Forms. I have recorded the steps in this short article, where we will explore how to drag and drop images into a PictureBox.
In this article, we will explore some common text file operations using C# and VB.NET. This article has been requested by a long time reader of NET provides various classes like the File and FileInfo, to create, read, write and perform such similar operations on a text file. For example, you can use the Create() method of the File class to create a text file. The same could also be done using the CreateText() method of the FileInfo class. Similarly these classes also contain functionality to copy, move or delete a file. The trick is to find out when to use which class and for what purpose.
In this article, we will explore some commonly used conversion functions in our projects. This is the first part of our two part series. I will cover up some other commonly used conversions in the second part.
In this article, I have compiled some common String operations that we encounter while working with the String class. In Part I, I have covered 15 common string operations. In the next article, I will continue this article and cover 15 more.
In the previous article, 30 Common String Operations in C# and VB.NET – Part I, we explored 15 common String operations while working with the String class. In Part II of the article, we will continue with the series and cover 15 more.
A thumbnail is a small sized image. Creating a thumbnail using .NET is extremely simple. In this article, we will explore how to create a thumbnail image and display the thumbnail in our application.

Please! The "Common String" and "Common Conversion" articles may be worth on their own (than maybe not...), but what do they have to do with "Windows Forms" in particular.  Shouldn't there be something more relevant on a top 10 list about Windows Forms?

Chris: Point taken. Some of them may be related to both Win and WebForms or may require a section of their own. Nevertheless, they can be used in WinForms and are also quiet handy to use in projects. Our aim was to highlight a few good articles related to WinForms

Anyways thanks for the feedback. We will take care henceforth!!
