Indeed you didn't - but considering that this tutorial is aimed squarely at beginners, they are going to take heed of your advice and start calling all their forms "MainForm", "AboutForm", "OrderForm" etc, instead of the preferred "frmMain", "frmAbout", "frmOrder".

Have you noticed we're arguing about an "o"? What's the problem with naming them MainForm anyway? And after a while using MainForm you maybe change to MainFr or something else just because you like it better. The point I was trying to make was that you shouldn't name them form1, textbox1, unknownitem1321, Info, About or anything like that.

I don't mean to argue. I am just communicating my point. ;)

Yes and I can see what you have written. I am merely explaining the standard naming conventions that are used by the majority of people, which help vastly whilst programming.

Lol - I try not to be insulting or too forceful, but I love my debates I do. ;) It's a shame you weren't around for the Xav/Meth0dz flame wars.. as any old member will tell you, they were hilarious.
