Thanks for the link, Oscar!

The only thing in your message that I didn't understand was the abbreviations... What is S.W.F and what does S.D. stand for? Does S.W.F. = System.Windows.Forms? S.D. ... ?

Sorry... just trying to jump in and get a better understanding of what I'm in for. Thanks for the quick reply!

Dear Jason,

As stated once before, I would love to port winforms to Aqua under OS X...
I just lack the knowhow.

I've been looking into this to try and evaluate the scope of the project. The following link should give you a start on performing interop with the
standard Cocoa libraries. and follow the link titled Cocoa Interop

The major hurdle is that you cannot access the messaging system of
Objective-C directly so you must write c-style wrappers. You can then build your own c# based NS* objects using those wrappers. Finally, you can write a
S.W.F and S.D implementation using your c# NS* objects.

It would be nice if there was a tool that could generate the wrappers (and
maybe also the c# classes)
directly from the published docs.
