Hi Experts,

I have a panel containing a set of controls which i would like to replicate at runtime.

How could i declare the panel as a type so i could quite easily create a new copy of it?

Simply create a user control and put all the functionality there.

Then, instead of instantianting the panel and all the associated controls, you simply instantiate the user control.

Glad to help.

Just a word... you want to include only the controls, and not the panel, in the user control. You can still drop this set of controls in a panel for layout purposes, if required.

Great; I will be using the panel for the title bar.
This particular set for controls is a project template for my application.
Good to know though.

Thanks again,
