Frame inheritance in Packages
Posted on 2006-06-13
I have a question about frame inheritance amoung multiple packages.
I have a generic frame (based on TFrame) that I like to use as a base frame throughout my software. This frame simply has some very basic properties and events that I like to use for many of my frames.
Now the problem I am having is I have multiple packages that need access to this generic frame I have created. I know that packages have a requirement that the base unit must be included inside the package itself. There is also the requirement that the same unit cannot be in multiple packages.
So here is my question: How can I make it so that I can use my generic frame amoung multiple packages without having to maintain multiple copies of the same generic frame (my current solution)?
I have tried using the repository but this does not seem to work (I realize of course that this could possibly be the answer and I havn't done it correctly).
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
