Learning GUI Toolmaking Series
Scripting is one thing, but to make your tools really pop, you’ll eventually want to build your own Graphical User Interface for end-users to use, especially those who might be frightened of using a scripting environment like PowerShell.
In this series, I’ll take you step by step, from creating a GUI using the slower but easy to understand System.Windows.Forms method to the super quick, super effective XAML/WPF approach, using Visual Studio.
As time goes on and I post more and more about GUI Toolmaking, this post will always be updated with the newest links
These posts guide you through the approach I take to building up to a full GUI. First, with a problem and mission statement, then adding layers of complexity until we have our ideal tooling.
