When you design a new component in VB.Net, how can the component know by itself (without having to feed a property) on which form the component is hosted?

In your component you can say me.Parentform

or in the form where you are hosting it say

ControlName.ParentForm

A component that inherits from the Control class, has the Parent property that refers to the container.
A component must inherit Control if you want to use Controls.Add method.

I didn't had time to return to this project. Sorry.

My component inherits from System.ComponentModel.Component and is to be hosted into the component tray (at the same place a timer component is hosted). How can I know the form that is hosting this component?

ParentForm is not existing for components.
