How to call WCF Services from Console and Windows Forms application

In our previous tutorials i have already explained How to implement WCF Services in application. Now i am going to call WCF Services from Console application as well as WindowsFormsApplications .I will call same WCF Services which i have explained previously.When you will understand the whole concepts of WCF, then you can easily implement the WCF Services in any application.It (WCF) is the full enhancement of Web services.You can easily know the differences between WCF and web services here
There are some steps to implement each concepts in Console application which are given below:-  
Step 1:- First create your own WCF Services as shown, from Step 1 to Step 5 here  (previous tutorials).-->Run the WCF Services --> and copy the browser's URL as shown below:-

configure url

Step 2:- Open your visual studio --> File -->New-->Project -->Select console Application as shown below --> press OK.


Step 2:- Now open Solution Explorer -->Right click on Console Application 1 --> select Add Service References as shown below:-


Step 3:- Now Add  WCF Services Address (which already copied in step 5  ) --> press Go Button as shown below -->press OK.


Step 4:- Now open your console application (program.cs) -->write the following c# codes as given below:-

using System;
using ConsoleApplication1.ServiceReference1;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Istudent_dataClient obj = new Istudent_dataClient();
            //call mywebssite method from below codes
            string str = obj.mywebsite();
            //call rect_area method from below codes
            Console.WriteLine("Enter two float values for calulating Rectangle area");
            string s1 = Console.ReadLine();
            float i = float.Parse(s1);
            string s2 = Console.ReadLine();
            float j = float.Parse(s2);
            float area = obj.rect_area(i, j);
            Console.WriteLine("rectangle area is: " + area);
            //call Multiplication method from below codes
            Console.WriteLine("Enter two integer values for calulating multiplication of two Numbers");
            int p = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
            int q = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
            int mult = obj.multiplication(p, q);
            Console.WriteLine("Multiplication of two number is : " + mult);
            //call student class method from below codes
            Console.WriteLine("student class member data are below:-");
            ServiceReference1.student st = obj.GetData();
            Console.WriteLine("Student id is : ";
            Console.WriteLine("Student name is : " + st.sname.ToString());

Note:- In Above program i have called each WCF Services Methods.I have mentioned each method  call in comment section of the program.

Step 5: Now Run the Application (press F5)-->You will following output as shown below:-


Note:- Similarly You call WCF Services from WindowsFormsApplications also by adding Service Reference URL of WCF services as shown below:-
