VB.Net -- Can I include a form in another folder rather than copy it?
Posted on 2007-10-19
I often find it useful to use the same code, including forms, in multiple projects.
But in Visual Basic .Net 2003 & 2005, when I add an existing form to a project, Visual Studio copies the form into my project folder. That leaves me with 2 places to maintain that code -- which is not acceptable.
I had thought this was a 2003 problem & maybe 2005 would fix it, but it hasn't. I'm looking at upgrading to 2008, but have little hope of it being solved.
Is there a way to get VB.Net to include the form that's in another folder without copying?
