Saving in .Net Forms

Aug 3 2022 1:47 PM

Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to coding, but what experience I do have is mostly in C#. 

A brief explanation of what I'm doing. 

I'm trying to put together an application to help with my business. its windows forms in C#. I'm going to use this application mainly to write new quotes, edit quotes, and view/print quotes. I've put together a form using multiple text boxes to enter my information into, first name, last name, phone number, etc.

My problem, and Question to you. 

I've tried using a stream writer to save to a file and I even tried a JSON file system. I either get a blank save file, or all the text boxes are jumbled together.

What would be the best method to save all the information correctly and also be able to open in another form to view and print later on?

Thanks!
