CSharp AddressRegister Control

Click here for a larger image.

Environment: .NET Framework, CSharp (C#)

The control seems like the Microsoft Outlook Address Register Control (under Contacts) with a little bit more .NET-Style. I created this control due to my own need. I don't have enough time to create a big article about this control. You can easily add this control to your project and to your main form. Modify the buttons' labels thru the AddressManager.cs "buttons[]private string[] menuitems = new string[]{ ... };".

You can assign custom OnClick Events thru a function named "public void ButtonPressHandler(int, string)" in your main form.

There are three button states: ITEM_HOVER, ITEM_DEACTIVE, and ITEM_ACTIVE.

It takes just 10 minutes of your time to implement this control.

Your Main Form or MDI Parent Form


  public class Form1 : System.Windows.Forms.Form
    private RFCC_AddressManager.AddressManager aManager;


      public Form1()

        this.aManager = new RFCC_AddressManager.AddressManager
        this.aManager.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.White;
        this.aManager.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Left;
        this.aManager.Name = "aManager";
        this.aManager.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(48, 573);
        this.aManager.TabIndex = 0;


    public void ButtonPressHandler( int button_number,
                                    string button_text )
      switch( button_number ) {
        case 0:
          // ACTION FOR BUTTON 0
        case 1:
          // ACTION FOR BUTTON 1
        case 2:
          // ACTION FOR BUTTON 2
          // DEFAULT ACTION
