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 (click here for full size image). 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.
