Shaika Dzari already told you where to find tutorials, so I won't go into that.

Let me tell you that C# is case sensitive (yes, even MS's version).
What the problem probably was in your particular code is that you


When you should have written:

this.Label1.Text = "something";

By the way, the class library is written in C#, so it is allways case
sensitive regardless of language you use it to access it. Other things
might not be, but the class library is.

Why? This is a perfectly legal declaration in C#:

public class CaseSensitive
    public int N;
    public int n;

Now, if CaseSensitive was called from a case insensitive language, and
you issued:


There would be no way of knowing which casEsensitivE.N you refer to.

Jesus bless you,
