Now diving into IronPython I decided to give blogpingr a GUI. I am lazy, just so you know and using a shell to execute the programm got me bored. Also this probably is a good oportunity to check out how you can use window forms from within IronPython.
Of course credit goes to Borislav Gizdov`s for coming up with blogpingr in the first place. I just hooked his code into IronPython structures.
I still got to add threads to this programm so the methods won`t lockdown the textbox on execution. Maybe I will add some inplace editing functions to add, edit or remove rpc servers from the .conf file. Once that is down I will release the source on this blog. So stay tuned for updates.
