Getting started


Recommended Posts


Ok so I’ve done some development on smaller scales and I'm having some troubles starting on this one. I'm interested in learning technique and proper practice on large scales. You know you can only read about it so many times but actually seeing it will be different. My main question is about form design. I see that everything is derived form the PdnBaseForm class. So how can I see what’s on the MainForm in the form editor? VS is only showing it as a cs file and wont show the form in the form editor.

It's been a long time since our forms were usable in the VS Forms editor. There's just so much that the forms editor started freaking out about, so we don't really use it anymore except when creating new forms.

It especially doesn't care much for how we handle localization -- string and bitmap resources, that is.
