[Tip] Taking quick inputs in WinForm applications

Posted by Gaurav Khanna on February 2, 2006

There are frequent scenarios when we need to take inputs from the user but which dont warrant designing a form to take the input. For such scenarios, use the Interaction class’s static InputBox method, which is based in Microsoft.VisualBasic assembly. Sample usage is below:

string strServiceMachine = Interaction.InputBox(“Enter the IP Address/Name of the machine running Sudoku Game service:”, this.Text, null,-1,-1);

Very similar to VB6’s InputBox function.
