Tools: Visual Studio, C#, Windows Forms
UI Mock Up, what I’m trying to do
Hi, this is, I’m sure, a very noobish question. I have no doubt there is plentiful information out there on what I want to do. My problem is that I don’t know what I need to do, or, by extension, how to search for it. The closest I’ve come is using MDI to create multiple instances of a form, it would work, sort of, but I’m not sure if it’s really what I want.
Basically I am trying to create a tool for my friend who’s running a D&D campaign. Each line tracks the health of a particular enemy in the game, the buttons allow the user to add, subtract, or reset health. I have no problem programming the simple calculations needed for the primary functions of this tool, however I can’t seem to figure out how to make it scale-able. The image I attached shows how I want it to look. How do I make the “ADD NEW” button function as expected? Adding a new panel of controls beneath the last? How do I make sure that the added panel only effects its own set of variables? Does this have to be done through multiple instances of a child form via MDI? If so how do I make the new forms pop in as a new panel row as shown in my image instead of as a window?
I don’t need anybody to write me a tutorial, I just need to know what to even search for to find information on what it is I’m trying to do. Perhaps I’m in over my head, but I feel like this should be pretty simple once I learn what I need to learn.
