Introducing the sample application

The sample application, shown in the following figure, consists of five forms: a container, three application windows, and a login dialog. The chapters that follow describe how to create each form. As you create each form, you will learn:
*How to use the Visual Designer to implement some of the controls commonly used in OpenEdge GUI for .NET applications
*How to connect the controls to data sources
*How to handle events

Be aware that the sample application is not meant to be an example of a real-world application. It does not represent a solution to any particular business problem. It is not meant to be a model of best practices for coding or for UI design. It is a simplified application that introduces the features of the Visual Designer.
