Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Right-click on your project, and choose to add the Film.cs class into it.  Have a look at this class to see what it contains:

Film class

This class allows you to store the details of a film.


Create a new form called frmFilms, and add a button and a datagridview to create this:

Empty form

Call your controls btnShow and dgvFilms.

Add code to the button so that when you click on it you see a list of your favourite films:

Favourite films

Your list will be (very) different!

Your code should:

  1. Create a new list of objects of type Film;
  2. Create a few objects of type Film, adding each to this list;
  3. Set the DataSource property of the datagridview to be this list.

When you've finished, close down any open windows.
