Tutorial

A note about 'Namespaces"

C# is a powerful programming language.  It helps to have a wonderful editor such as the Visual Studio IDE to write C# programs. 

In the following video you will see that when you create a Windows Forms Application, an instance of a Form will be created with a default name Form1.  This is what you see:

Form1 System.Windows.Forms.Form

He will tell you that System.Windows.Forms is a namespace.  So what is a namespace? A namespace holds a collection of classes organized into groups.

System.Windows.Forms holds a group of classes that can be used by the objects a Form contains.  A form can contain buttons, labels, checkboxes, and much more. These are all classes inside the namespace System.Windows.Forms.

All C# programs use the System namespace which is the global container.   Your program can have any number of namespaces according to the needs of your program.
