Building A GUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm fairly new to programming, have some basic understanding. What I want to do is build a GUI that will basically gather data from another software and allow me to sort and perform other calculations. I'm just wondering if  this is possible to attempt on visual studio i.e build a GUI where when I click start it will gather the information from another software. The third party software is simply used to gather data points, but right now I have to copy the data and then sort it by hand. I'm hoping to build a GUI to automate this process.  Just looking for tips on how I can proceed.

    Thank You

  • Hello,

    Please ask in the proper language forum in the Visual Studio Languages forums on MSDN, with details on what you have tried, and where you are having problems.

    For the GUI parts, depending on what form technology you are using, you can try posting to one of the following forums:

    Windows Forms General
    Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
    ASP.Net forums
