In this chapter, we learned about additional Windows forms controls, common dialog boxes, and how we can use ActiveX controls in Windows forms applications. These controls can be used to provide extended user interface features. We discussed several groups of controls – panels, splitters, tab controls and tab pages, status bars, scroll bars, and so on. For each group, we provided a list of classes that comprise it, detailed descriptions of each class, its properties and methods, and usage examples.
We will continue to learn about Windows forms in the next chapter where we will talk about graphical functions available in the System.Drawing namespace and its secondary namespaces.
