You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a simple form allowing a user to type in their name:

Simple form

This version consists of a vertical stack panel containing two horizontal stack panels.  Yours doesn't have to look like this!


Attach code to the Cancel button so that it closes the form (use this) when someone clicks on it.

Attach code to the OK button so that it displays the name typed in when clicked:

Welcome message box

What you should see if you type Bob into the text box and click on the OK button.


For a bonus, see if you can get the following message to appear if a user leaves the textbox blank:

Error message if name blank

The second argument for MessageBox.Show will let you specify the title for the message box (here it is Error).


When you're happy everything is working OK, close this window down.
