Creating a .NET Windows Installer Part 1 - The Sample Project
(Page 4 of 14 )

In this article we will create an installer for the .NET project shown below.

This simple application allows the user to choose a font from a drop-down list. The font is drawn onto the form surface in a Paint event handler. The form code (aside from the Windows designer region) is shown below:

public class main : System.Windows.Forms.Form
{
    private void main_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        InstalledFontCollection fonts = new InstalledFontCollection();
        foreach (FontFamily family in fonts.Families)
        {
            lstFonts.Items.Add(family.Name);
        }
    }

    private void main_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
    {
        if (lstFonts.Text != "")
        {
            try
            {
                e.Graphics.DrawString(lstFonts.Text, new Font(lstFonts.Text,
                                      50), Brushes.Black, 10, 50);
                statusBar.Panels[0].Text = "";
            }
            catch (Exception err)
            {
                statusBar.Panels[0].Text = err.Message;
            }
        }
    }

    private void lstFonts_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (lstFonts.Text != "") this.Invalidate();
    }
}
