IronPython Sample: Windows Forms and Map Point

This tutorial, written by Martin Schray, consists of a set of IronPython programs that show how to use the Windows controls found within System.Windows.Forms. These IronPython tutorial programs vary greatly in functionality and include:

  • Several “Hello World” applications showing how to leverage core Windows forms classes
  • An application with an embedded web browser
  • A small application based on Windows MapPoint Web Services that provides a map, given a location
  • Another application based on MapPoint that lets the user get a route map given start and end points

The tutorial.htm file in the download (download page: will get you started.  This sample builds from simple “Hello World” applications to a web browser application and finally to a mapping application.
