whenever i try to include the 'System.WinForms' library, the compiler gives an error stating that:

WinForms does not exist in the namespace 'System'

I'm using 'beta 1' of the .NET framework and therefore have also tried using the 'System.Windows.Forms' API.....same message!!!

    I've run into something similar in a practice project that I've done from my textbook. What I [italic]think[/italic] you need to do is reference System.Windows.Forms.dll. Something like this if you compile from the command line...

    [code]
    csc /r:System.Windows.Forms.dll code1.cs code2.cs
    // In order for the compiler to resolve anything calling
    // the System.Windows.Forms.dll assembly, you must specify
    // it as a compiler option by referencing it

    csc /r:System.Windows.Forms.dll /out:TestApp.exe *.cs
    // the C# compiler does allow you to make use of the wildcard
    // character to inform csc.exe to add all *.cs files in the
    // current directory as part of the current build
    [/code]

    I hope that helps!
