Hi Sandy,

I don't think I did install libmono-winforms2.0-cil at all. I assumed that
everything would be installed when I installed MonoDevelop. I'll try that
today. I also didn't add a reference to the library in the project so that
would be a problem too.

Finally, I at least did get the using statements right (I think). I added:

using System.Windows.Forms;

to the using area of the file. Is this right?

Anyway, thank you for the help. I'll give  it a try and see what happens!
