■ The form is the basic building block of Windows Forms applications. Forms provide a variety of properties that can be used to affect the appearance of the user interface, including Text, BorderStyle, Size, Opacity, and the behavior of the user interface, such as WindowState and TopMost.
■ Forms are generally rectangular, but non-rectangular forms can be created by setting the Region property to a non-rectangular region.
■ Container controls can host and help manage layout of individual controls.
■ The SplitContainer control can be used to create dynamically sizable sections of a form, each of which contains its own controls.
■ Controls can be added to a form at design time by selecting a control from the toolbox or dynamically at run time.
