There are some steps to build this setup file in visual studio 2012 which are given below:-

Step 1:- First Open Your visual studio-->File -->New -->project -->Select Windows Forms Application -->OK-->Open Solution Explorer (by press View Button) -->Add a New Web Form.
Step 2:- Now Drag and Drop Button ,TextBox and Label control from Toolbox on the Form as shown below:-
Step 4:- Now Right click on each Button -->Go Properties --> Press Events Icon -->Now Create button event handler [Numeric Button(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,.) ,Operator button(-,+,*,/) ,CA Button ,Ac Button ,Equal button,Off Button] manually as shown below:-

Note :- You have to put all Numeric button to under Numeric_button_click  event, similarly put other button also.
Step 3:- Now Write the C# Codes in Form.cs File inside each event handlers which i have created manually as given below:-

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace First_calculator
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        string op_value = "";
        double txt_value=0;
        bool bool_value = false;
        public Form1()

        private void Numeric_button_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (textBox1.Text == "0" || bool_value)
            bool_value = false;
            Button bu = (Button)sender;
            textBox1.Text = textBox1.Text + bu.Text;

        private void off_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private void CE_button_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            textBox1.Text = "0";
            label1.Text = null;

        private void AC_button_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            op_value = "0";
            label1.Text = null;
        private void operator_click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                Button bu = (Button)sender;
                op_value = bu.Text;
                txt_value = double.Parse(textBox1.Text);
                bool_value = true;
                label1.Text = txt_value + "" + op_value;

        private void Equal_button_click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            switch (op_value)
                case "+":
                    textBox1.Text = (txt_value + double.Parse(textBox1.Text)).ToString();
                case "-":
                    textBox1.Text = (txt_value - double.Parse(textBox1.Text)).ToString();
                case "*":
                 textBox1.Text = (txt_value * double.Parse(textBox1.Text)).ToString();

               case "/":
                 textBox1.Text = (txt_value / double.Parse(textBox1.Text)).ToString();

  • Here I have putted all numeric button such as 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, . in Numeric_button_click Event Handler section.So You have to go each numeric Button's properties -->Events --> Set Click =Numeric_button_Click.
  • Here i have putted Operator button such as +,-,*,/ in operator_button_Click  Event Handler-->So go each operator Button's properties -->Events --> Set Click =operator_button_Click.
  • Similarly others also putted in respective event handlers,You can see it in above c# coding.
Step 4:- Now Run the Application (press F5)-->you will see following output:-
