Please post your questions in the appropriate forums. Items submitted to the tutorial sections are not visible to the public until they have been validated/approved. I have moved this to the C# section for you.

You are asking a very complex task without providing any information, reasons or base code.

the chat window and the "video" window maybe tougher, but the rest is fairly easy.

You might want to start looking into building your own custom controls. Do some research on 'User Control' projects, and respond with some specific questions you may have.

I am currently working on a little side project, utilizing custom controls, that I will be turning into a tutorial that I will post here at D.I.C. (I'd like the tutorial to be up within the next week or two).

yes you can make that GUI. You could do a majority of it with the standard .Net controls.

Hello,

The form background can be done by adding this code into the OnPaint event of the form:

            e.Graphics.SmoothingMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.SmoothingMode.AntiAlias;
            Rectangle baseRectangle = new Rectangle(0, 0, this.Width - 1, this.Height - 1);
            Brush myBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(133, 167, 184));
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(myBrush, baseRectangle);


Also I'm interested in a code snippet to change the form's shape.

King Regards,
IAmCypher

No need to bring up topics that were created a while ago. My recommendation would be creating a separate topic for your questions from now on.

But for the record, there is Windows Presentation Foundation for the elements you are looking for.
