I have a winform with a form 'patientform' that connect to a patient table in a database, now i want that when ever a patient or group of patient is due for check up(i.e a day to their checkup date), a pup up window should be displayed when the patient form is loaded, with a list of all the patient due for check up and their phone numbers.on the form there should also be a
titletextbox for heading of message, and a textbox to input the message and a sendbutton which onclick send sms message to those patient

If you know it is a common topic here, then why are you asking the question?

Google will help you find many, many examples of full projects and explanations, or the Search facility on this site will do the same.

We are not here because you are too lazy to navigate to google and type in a few words of text. If you get a specific problem rather than "do this for me" please come back and ask it as a question. Until then, stop wasting your time and ours.

this is also not your soltution ,this is your suggestion so use comments...if any one asking the help dont shout..its not look fair according to your experience..
and some time all like u r the people who are top 5 in 24 hrs..if someone goes top instead of u regular five then u reports those profile as spam its also not a good..

if u have not a answer ignore it..some one will give why you are shouting on someone its nt a first time

As it happens, it is a solution, in that it tells him what he should do to solve his problem.
It also gently chides him for not doing that in the first place.
And, it removes it from the "unanswered" list, without the penalty applied if it gets marked as "not a question".

First of all, you cannot send a textmessage with a winform alone.
You need some hardware to do this.

You can use a textmessage service online, if that is the case they should provide you with their API and documentation on how to do this.

You can also plug in a mobile telephone to your computer with usb.
Then connect your winform to the phone using the SerialPort class in .net.
From there you can send AT commands to give your phone instructions on what to do (you can also get information from the phone).

I have done this using AT commands before, it works very well.
Good luck.
