    I've basically got to create a project but I still haven't decided whether to pick windows form application or website. My teacher was telling me that windows form application may have problems with sending data from one window to another, and I was wondering if this was true?

    I haven't got much experience with HTML & CSS, so I went with windows form but what my teacher told me concerns me.

    All application development has its pros and cons. Windows development is straightforward until you need to do something a bit left field, primarily use some form of customised widget or control. Similarly, any form of custom graphics can become very complex, as one tends to draw to a bitmap and then blit it to the screen. However, there may be some .Net functionality that can help you in that department.

    As for sending data between windows. Are we talking dialogues within the same application, or two completely different application windows? If the former, then there is no issue. Since all dialogues stem from the same application, you can store the data as a global variable or better, pass it into the corresponding dialogue classes.

    Going a Windows based project will stand you in good stead as a specialist for the future, but the current trend is decidedly web based front ends, even for established legacy systems.

    Good luck and let me know if you need any further help.
