Hi, I am Luke, it's my first Instructable. I want to show you how to create a simple phone book application in Microsoft Visual Studio using C#. It's good to have some basic knowledge of programming before making this project.

Let's get started.
We need Microsoft Visual Studio, it's free for students, you can get Professional Edition from MSDNAA. Search google for more information.

This is how our application will look like:

Step 1: Creating new project in Microsoft Visual Studio

Start Microsoft Visual Studio, and create new Project, choose Windows Forms Application remeber project type is Visual C#. You can name your project whatever you want and change location for the project if nessesary.
<p>one error (GRID) its coing all the time</p>
Error 2 'Phonebook.Form1.Dispose(bool)': no suitable method found to override<br><br><br>HELP ME!
<p>EndEdit() is your own Created Method right ??</p>

Hi Man, welcome to Instructables. This is something I wouldn't do, but it's well done (and the English is fine). L
<p>Keep getting this error (GRID) not found in context, can anyone help</p>
change your datagridview1 name with GRID
<p> When i click in save button on menustrip the dialog window opens and where I must save the file? Can anybody help me?</p>
<p>A czy to samo, tylko po Polsku, jest gdzieś dostępne?</p>
hi luke!<br/>i guess this would be more useful if it has search, edit buttons and textbox or label to display the search item..<sup>_</sup><br/>coz it would be easier to search for the person your looking for if you listed 50 or more names.<br/><br/>hope you add em. <sup></sup>,<br/>
Yes you are right. I'll do it in this week I think so :)
kindly pm me if your done with the additional modifications. thanks!
you can now change the apps name from "simple phonebook" to "simple phonebook: with search and edit". that would better eh!?
