Default where is my System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox?

this is my very simple progam :
namespace ConsoleApplication2
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

I got this compilation error:
    Error 1 The type or namespace name 'MessageBox' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Windows.Forms' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
Anybody , any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.

You have to add the reference to System.Windows.Forms.dll.

Send a message via Yahoo to new_bie

why would you want a message box to appear in your console application although its just a namespace for your project ConsoleApplication2 i am assuming you are creating a console app. use windows application instead it will make more sense.
