I am creating a form with tabs.  It is a nice concept but the problem is I am finding the form becoming very monolithic.

Is there a way to modulize the form better so I can organize my functions.

What I want to do is make modules for error checking so before the client can submit the information in the controls can be validated .  How can i do this

for example I was trying to do this in a module

public sub clientFormPageErrorCheck()

if txtClientID.Text.equals("") and txtFamilyNumber.text.equals("") then

throw new system.exception("Client ID or Family number must be entered.")

end sub


it will work in the form but not in the module

The easiest solution would be to leave all the code in the form and define Regions in it so you can collapse them when you don't want to see them.  You create the regions by simply typing #Region "Your desired region name here" and then ending it with #End Region as shown below:

#Region "Validation"

    Private Sub foo()

    End Sub

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click

    End Sub

#End Region

If you want to move some of the code to a module, then you can pass in a reference to the form so it can access the controls on it:

    public sub clientFormPageErrorCheck(byval f as form1) ' or whatever your form name is....

        if f.txtClientID.Text.equals("") and f.txtFamilyNumber.text.equals("") then

            throw new system.exception("Client ID or Family number must be entered.")

    end sub

From your form you would call it like this:

    clientFormPageErrorCheck(Me)
