Best way to move control into container

Moving a control into a container control causes it to loose the events it was hooked to.  Sometimes the control is even renamed.  I'd like to take all of the controls I have on a form and put them into a container.  Is there a way to do that without loosing any of the events or properties set on these controls?

How are you moving them from container to container, also what version of Visual Studio are you using?

Drag and drop.  This should have to the VS.NET 2005 zone.

Strange, I will have to test this, I never had this problem, all my events etc stayed put.

If you have a downloadable solution (zipped without the bin files) I might be able to see some "circumstantial" evidence of a problem.  If not, I can create a dummy project, tell me what type of container you're moving it to and from.  (like panel etc)

I just checked, I had no problems like you mentioned, unfortunately (fortunately?)...  Maybe you should describe exactly what you did, I did a lot of shuffling, dragging and dropping all my controls to different tab controls and panels, on a working application (with lots of nice controls and properties set with lots of events) and it worked just the way it did (albeit a bit ugly because of the moving items about into weird places for testing)...

I tried it as well. I got pretty involved with it and everything is fine.  I don't know what to say.  Guess I just wanted to make you work for these points.  I've have it happen before though.  Events for a control get wiped out.  Probably a very unique environment in which it will ever happen.  Thanks.

Glad it's fixed at least :)  Nothing worse than "untraceable" problems...

Actually, this is a more of a problem in ASP.NET.  I took it for granted it would be a winform issue.  Before I got into  moving lots of controls, I wanted to see if anyone knew of a way to avoid loosing properties/events.  So, I should post this in the ASP.NET zone.

Oh that's a different ball of cheese and lint all together, better post there.  If I get time I'll try investigate it, but at the moment I'm busy with a project - post the link here if you can please, I'll peek in hopefully.
