Howto: Determine the Form that is inherited from another form.

I have this base Form:
Public Class FormReBind
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    Event ReBinding()
#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "
    Public Sub ReBind()
        RaiseEvent ReBinding()
    End Sub
End Class

and inherited Form is:
Public Class Form1
    Inherits FormReBind
....
In Form Main:
   Dim frm as Form
   If frm is FormReBind then <== Howto?
      'Place some code
   End if

Thanks for helping .

Basically every form is inherited. Your form ReBind is inherited from Windows.Form

Hi,

I think what you need could be written like this :

If frm.GetType.IsSubclassOf(GetType(FormReBind)) Then

Glom is right, but you have to put an instance of base class to get its type:

Dim frm as New Form()
Dim frmReBind as New FormReBind()

If frm.GetType.IsSubclassOf( frmReBind.GetType() ) Then
      'Place some code
End if

HTH,

Hi Jigit,
I have tested my code, and the name of the class is enough for the GetType function. No need to have an instance ;)

Thanks Glom, it's work. And with your approach I found another way, like:

If TypeOf frm is FormReBind Then
    'Place some code
End If

Thank for your help again.
