I'm quite new to this, coming out of a security/encryption background, but I need to write a WinForms app in C# with .NET 3.5 for WinMobile 6/PocketPC 5. PureMVC seems the way to go; it covers all my target environments. However, I'm new not only to PureMVC, but to Win GUI programming. I hope this question isn't too, too, basic.
The Best Practices guide and the WPF example are extremely helpful. I have the WPF example up and running in Visual Studio, and am trying to get a very simple MVC Winforms app up and running.
My test app consists of 3 Forms, each has 1 button. Form1 goes to Form2, Form2 to Form3, and Form3 back to Form2. This allows startup specific code to be associated with Form1, and Forms 2&3 to have a nice symmetry.
This works fine in pure WinForms; I'm now trying to make it work via MVC. At the moment, my primary concern is 'Where the heck should I be initiating PureMVC?
' The WPF app initiates its concrete Facade extension in App's constructor (an extension of Application).
Where would be the equivalent point in a WinForms app? In Main()? or in Form1's constructor? Somewhere else?
I'd love to see a small complete example, using C#, PureMVC, and Winforms, but have been unable to locate one. The best link I've found ishttp://www.pathf.com/blogs/2009/07/winforms-development-made-simple-with-puremvc/
but its no where near complete.
thanks in advance,
