I am quite new to VB.NET, moving over from Visual Foxpro. In foxpro it was possible to subclass all of the standard windows controls in a class lbrary and then use the subclassed controls to build your forms.
The main benefit is that you can add functionality to the standard controls and adjust there appearance in the subclassed control which would then filter down to the controls throughout your application.
I have built a class library in VB.NET and subclasses all of the controls using the standard...
Public Class myTextBox
This works fine and I can add the class library dll to the toolbar - great. The only problem is, when I alter a control in the class library (say changing a font for example) - the change isnt reflected in the forms that use the control. In order for this to work I have to remove the controls and add them again!
Am I missing something here? Has anyone any examples of a control library class that I can look at?
I would really appreciate your help as im getting more and more irritated by some of the .NET functionality! (I wont mention transparent controls!!)
