How to use metroframework modern ui via NuGet


Now let’s add metroframework modern ui controls on our toolbox. Right click on toolbox select Choose Items and locate the folder from where we save our project, on my end I save it in `E:\Systems Development\DMA\MetroNuGet`. Inside our project folder NuGet package manager downloaded the Metro Modern UI – Metro Framework package and put it inside the packages folder.

Let’s open this up until we landed in `packages\MetroModernUI.\lib\net` from where we can see 3 DLL`s of metroframework modern ui. Let’s select `MetroFramework.dll` and click `Open`.

This will add all the available controls inside the `metroframework modern ui`

Now lets make our form `Form1` as a metro form by opening the code of it and paste the code below :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using MetroFramework.Forms;

namespace MetroSample
public partial class Form1 : MetroForm
public Form1()

Save your changes and go back the design mode. You can now drag and drop metro controls to your form and design your project.
