Hi Y'all

I came from Visual Foxpro 9.0, in it i can create standard forms.
These forms already contains code for saving data, closing the window
standard headings and pictures.

since I am now developing for C# (Coolest, Sharpest PL i've handled)

in visual foxpro you can save this forms in a library file and
you can actually add it to your toolbox.

So in design time all you have to do is to click and drag from
the toolbox your form.

Is there a similar functionality in C#.

I tried once copying one form to another filename, guess what when
I edited a form all of the references still points to the name of the
old form.

:-)

By the way some tip on visual foxpro programmer, there is a way to call
all of the functions of visual foxpro and also a way of issuing visual foxpro
commands through C#, this is way too cool. I was highly impressed at
both C# and VFP when I did this, imagine using the power of C# plus being able to access VFP in tandem, its through COM Interop. If anybody is interested I will post here the instructions plus code about 20 lines of VFP code. Its sooooo easy about 10 minutes and you will be up and running.

The COM sample came from VFP 9.0 -
