Disoriented in Windows.Forms
Well just as I was beginning to enjoy my little fantasy world, I got my first real programming job. I need to make a program for a restaurant opening in about 9 months that functions as an employee time clock, inventory, order manager, etc...
I'd like to lay it out as follows: A main window appears with a menu of all the selections. When the user presses a key corresponding to one of the items, the forms contents is replaced with the relevant form controls for that item, until the user is finished, at which time the window will return to it's original, Main Menu appearance. I've been doing Win32 in C for a while and I'm quite disoriented getting back into C# and it's Windowing API. How would I clear the main contents of a window (I'd like to leave the border and title bar alone) like that? Individually Hide() each elements and the new ones? I'm going through all my old source code to get back into it, but I'd really appreciate it if someone could clear this up for me.
