Hi,

finally Microsoft has announced to support GUI with .NET Core 3.0.

I had expected they would do some enhanced WPF GUI and port it also to MacOS and Linux, but they have announced to make available WinForms and WPF windows on .NET Core 3.0, and only for Windows. The good notice is that they will make available also controls from UWP to WPF and WinForms.

That means that contrarily to what I expected WinForms has a future too, saving a lot of investments.
That makes a WinForms based VO GUI classes compatible library more important than ever, and we can expect to have a long live for our ported VO applications.

Take note also of XAML Islands.
In later Channel 9 talks, Scott Hunter clarifies that WinForms/WPF support for .NET Core 3 may branded as desktop package or something. WinForms uses a lot of Windows API; and WPF also users DX9. Both are missing on .NET Core as of this moment. So, when this got ported.


I love it and keep me up all night just to watch everything on .NET, C#, ASP.NET.


.NET Core 3 support for Desktop Apps may be the beginning of the end of Windows only desktop .NET apps.

Take a peek on both videos. Scott Hunter mention something about I mention above.

If I heard it right, it is subject for .NET and C# management team to decide whether to support .NET Core 3 desktop apps for Mac and Linux. There are possibilities, regardless, at least, .NET Core desktop apps is really possible outside of UWP. At this point, what is clearer that it will remain within Windows ecosystem which I believe is notch below than being great.

Hi Rene,

IMHO the most important notice for us that we have tons of legacy code is that our applications can continue to live under the .NET Framework.

If you need a cross platform GUI framework, look at Avalonia:
