Example of work with Windows Forms

As another example of universality of HarePoint Explorer for SharePoint, let`s review the operations with class System.Windows.Forms.Form.

Open new script window and modify text of method Main the following way:

C#
 
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Text;
using MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.CodeForm;
using MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.Utilities.ScriptRunner;
using System.Windows.Forms;
 
public class Tester
{
    static void Main(
         MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.CodeForm.MLCodeForm thisForm
        ,MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.Utilities.ScriptRunner.MLBrowser browser
        )
    {
        
        Form form = new Form(); 
        form.Text = "Hello From MAPILab Explorer For SharePoint"; 
        FlowLayoutPanel layoutPanel = new FlowLayoutPanel(); 
        form.Controls.Add(layoutPanel); 
        layoutPanel.Dock = DockStyle.Fill; 
        TextBox textBox = new TextBox(); 
        textBox.Text = "Enter you name"; 
        layoutPanel.Controls.Add(textBox); 
        Button button = new Button(); 
        button.Text = "Click Me!"; 
        layoutPanel.Controls.Add(button); 
        form.Show();
 
        // Output browser configuration 
        //browser.Text = "Browser window"; 
        //browser.DisplayMode = 
        MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.Utilities.ScriptRunner.DisplayMode.Expanded; 
        browser.ReturnValue = form;
    }
}

    Shared Sub Main(ByVal thisForm 
    As MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.CodeForm.MLCodeForm, 
                    ByVal browser 
                    As MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.Utilities.ScriptRunner.MLBrowser)
        
        Dim form 
        As Form = new Form()
        form.Text = "Hello From MAPILab Explorer For SharePoint" 
        Dim layoutPanel 
        As FlowLayoutPanel = new FlowLayoutPanel() 
        form.Controls.Add(layoutPanel)
        layoutPanel.Dock = DockStyle.Fill
        Dim textBox 
        As TextBox = new TextBox()
        textBox.Text = "Enter you name" 
        layoutPanel.Controls.Add(textBox)
        Dim button 
        As Button = new Button()
        button.Text = "Click Me!" 
        layoutPanel.Controls.Add(button)
        form.Show()
        
        ' Output browser configuration 
        'browser.Text = "Browser window" 
        'browser.DisplayMode = 
        MAPILab.SharePoint.Explorer.Utilities.ScriptRunner.DisplayMode.Expanded 
 
        browser.ReturnValue = form
    End Sub 
End Class 

The given program code creates new window, adds several controls in it, after that it is displayed using method Show() and returns reference to window object for further investigation. The result of script execution looks the following way:
