A lot of books deal with the console side of c# more than the form side.

I'd disagree with that, quite strongly: most "beginner" books start with the Console, because it's a lot easier to get your head round - but quickly move away to WinForms or WPF because that's what gets used in the real world. Certainly, all the Addison Wesley, Wrox, and Microsoft Press books that I've read do!

But it's pretty easy - it all works via Events. When you click the button, it generates an Event called "Click" which the Form (or another container like a UserControl perhaps) handles.

Open your form in the designer.
Double click the button. That will add a Click event handler to the form and open the code window to let you type code into the handler method.
Type your code:
MessageBox.Show("The Yes button was clicked", "My form event handler", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information);
And run your app.
Click the button, and the message will appear!

You code will look like this:
private void YesButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    MessageBox.Show("The Yes button was clicked", "My form event handler", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information);
    }
Because the system will add the handler method framework for you:
private           So that it is only usable inside the form.
void              Because it doesn't return a value
YesButton_Click   Name of the handler method: YesButton Click event
object sender     "sender" is object that raised the event (useful if several buttons share the same handler)
EventArgs e       Provides extra information on the event if you need it.
