Use Paint .NET Code


Recommended Posts

For one of my classes we have to develop a project for a professor. Given the time slot we have, he realizes we won't get all of the features implemented and he'll pick it up where we leave off. We have to build a simple image editor for Software Engineering class. The product will not be sold, but will be used by a few teachers. We're free labor! Anyways, I won't reuse any code. But, would it be ok to use some of the code as a reference? I've only had VB up to this point, so I basically have to learn C# in 2 weeks and the code seems like it would be a big help to everyone in the class due to the fact no one in the class knows C# and the nature of the project we have to build. If not, I'll understand. I also saw a dll named DotNetWidgets. That doesn't seem to be available anymore. Any other menu and toolbar controls you could recommend?

Sorry for such a long post! :shock:

1. You have permission to do whatever you want with the source code! The license that we use, the MIT license (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php) can best be summarized as "do whatever you want, just don't remove our copyright."

2. DotNetWidgets has been succeeded by SandBar, http://www.divil.co.uk/net/ , which looks very similar to the toolbar and menu enhancements present in .NET 2.0 (Whidbey aka Visual Studio 2005). The author seems to have completely deprecated and discontinued DotNetWidgets. We will be migrating to the .NET 2.0 enhanced toolbars and menus in the future.

2 weeks doesn't sound like nearly enough time, but good luck!

Our oh so wise professor did this to us! I think we will get roughly 60% of the project developed, I hope. It's mostly syntax differences and I'm picking it up fairly quickly. I've been going crazy with break points and such! What makes the whole situation worse, the professor for the class doesn't even know C# herself. We are developing this for a professor that has all the knowledge to finish it within a relatively short time himself. Mr. Bailes is a very knowledgeable developer and wrote his original application in C++ around 8-9 years ago. We get to be the people to upgrade his application to the new .NET libraries. My school hasn't even as much as offered C# before next semester. I know which teacher to take for that if I want to learn a lot. It'll be an interesting journey to say the least. Any good sites that would be good resources for learning C#? I seem to learn best by example as most tutorials, online anyway, don't even touch the surface of what .NET can do or learning detailed aspects of hardly any language.

Thanks for the reply.
