Kajabity.DocForms GitHub Repository
Kajabity.DocForms is a collection of WinForms classes to provide all those standard 'Boiler Plate' file handling features of a Windows Desktop application. These classes have been refactored from applications I've written over recent years and I am find I use them regularly for quickly putting together new applications.
This repository contains several sub-projects:
- Kajabity.DocForms - a DLL project providing a collection of utilities for .NET projects.
- Kajabity.DocForms.Test - a suite of NUnit tests for Kajabity.DocForms.
- Samples - a collection of sample Desktop application projects illustrating the use of some of Kajabity.DocForms utility classes, as well as other NuGets I have published.
See the Releases section on GitHub to download copies of code, DLL exe's and NuGets.
Kajabity.DocForms DLL is a strongly named assembly and is available from nuget.org as Kajabity.DocForms.
This code originally formed part of the Kajabity Tools library.
Full documentation is available at http://www.kajabity.com/kajabity-tools/.
