Hello all,

I'm just getting started with ArcObjects and I could use some help.
I found some great tutorials and examples about building add-ins, but I am wondering if I can customize an existing windows-based application to work inside ArcMap.

Here's a more detailed description of what i need to do.

I already have a windows-based application with forms written on C# that connects to SQL Server and insert/edit/delete data through stored procedures.
These records are related to polygons through the same ID.

What I need, is to make these forms run inside ArcMap 10.1, in order to save time for the user.
For example when a user clicks on the polygon, a form with data(for that specific ID) will be returned.

What's the best way of doing this?

Thank you in advance.
