The Main form user interface (UI) will contain all of the weather information that you ll display to the user. Refer to Figure 9-1 to see what the Main form will look like when finished. At the moment, the form does not have any controls to display the weather information. As you learned in the last chapter, you will use databinding to bind the controls to the weather data. You ll recall that when creating the data source, you had a choice of Database, Web Service, and Objects. In this application, you will use a Web service as a data source, and the fields you will display on the form will be data-bound to the Web service dataset.

MORE INFO
DoubleBuffered helps to reduce or prevent flickering when the form is redrawn. The form control is using a secondary buffer to update the form s graphics data, whereby a quick write to the displayed surface memory is then performed, reducing the chances of flickering. If DoubleBuffered is not enabled, then progressive redrawing of parts of the displayed form occurs, creating the flickering.
Adding Notification Area Capabilities
Now that you have established the Main form, you ll add the notification area capabilities. Let s talk about terminology. If an application uses an icon located in the notification area (the area on the Windows Taskbar where the clock normally appears), this icon is called a notify icon and is implemented with a NotifyIcon control. The icon can have a context menu with different actions. Your icon will have a context menu with the following choices: About, Refresh Weather Info, Options, Open, and Exit.
