Eqb815083yBro, drop forms. Do yourself a favour and start learning WPF atleast. You are going to get shit from the senior c# community if you use winforms.
Brolls32973yAgreed. WPF is the way to go.
If you’re really after something to do some 3D work with though, then look into Unity.
Brolls32973yIf you’re just trying to put some 3D stuff into a normal app, then yeah WPF is the way to go.
You can even host some WPF content in a winforms app if that’s a requirement.
What about backwards compability? I want it to work on win7, or even xp if it's possible (but mainly on win7-up)
sSam16223yWell, to me it seems like you are giving up on things too soon and switching up too much. I don't know much about C# GUI so can't help there, but if you want to support more OSes you can go with JavaFX it should work on XP and up, GNU/Linux, MacOS and more. For example, I'm not sure what you meant by Java not having dynamic typing like C# does and that doesn't allow you to store elements in a list? If you nees to store all kinds of elements just use List<Object>. Also the console stuff? Didn't really understand what you meant, but Java is almost 100% backwards compatible, so it shouldn't be different from version to version. Also for IDE I'd recommend IntelliJ.
I switch often because core of my program is ready and i want to try out different options that i have, on example to see what i can do in java and what i can do in C#.
I totaly forgot about "object" list :p i thougt list needs something specyfic like the full name of object im putting inside it.
In case of "dynamic" type its special type in c# that allows you to add additional things to it on the fly and i dont think java got it.
Thanks for tips tho. I will check them out later. I learned everything myself so i have no idea what should i use, im just a happy explorer now 😀.
Different .net apps like win app and wfp in addition to different .net versions feel like different launguages for me, because if you want to switch your app you need to change a lot of code!
bjorngi26The aCalendar app let's you choose vibration pattern, it's one of the better settings I've seen.
