good morning all,
i am developing a project in which, i need to provide user interface similar to that of VB's Form Designer... I mean, i need to offer facilities to drag control from toolbar, after the user places it on form he must be able to move/resize the controls (using the handles, as VB form editor offeres....
My questions are:
1> What would be the best way of doing this in .NET.. I mean, is there any support avialable in .NET class libraries, that help doing this??
If No, then your suggestion on the way it should be done ideally..
2> Any web link that may help me in properly designing or starting off the task...
Thanks for your time...

The container classes in .NET class libraries are bit confusing... i mean there is a Container Class that is not related with Form Class or Panel Class!!!! I am bit confused that for the problem i describe above, from which class i should extend my container class, i mean the class that will hold other dragDropped controls... I hope, i was able to express the problem properly, if thats not the case then plz let me know...

I did something like you want some months ago and even added the code pages and serialized all to XML ... some tricky stuff.

Good luck!
