Winforms Nostalgia

Had the chance to spoil myself today!

I needed a tool to migrate and manage quotes from an old json format I had used in a Xamarin application. That provided the perfect excuse to jump back into C# and Winforms. It’s been a while, I must say, I’ve been in Java and Delphi a lot lately.

It’s always a joy to use C#. I forgot how easy it is to bang something useful together in Winforms.

It’s totally early 2000’s in looks, but fully functional for an internal tool – actually I should probably renew my Bunifu subscription, it really does look dated 🙂

A wish of mine is that Microsoft would build a crossplatform version of WinForms based upon SKIA, using an approach similar to Delphi’s FireMonkey.
