Problem with Form Inheritance

Hello, I don't seem to be able to have a simple Form Inheritance in my project.
I have a separate project in my solution with a single .vb form, with the following code:

------------------------
Public Class FormsCommon

    Public ErrorPresent As Boolean
    Public AlreadyDone As Boolean
    Public TableCode As String

    Private Sub FormsCommon_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

    End Sub
End Class

Public Interface CommonInterface
    Sub ControllaForm()
End Interface
-------------------------------

Then I try to create, in another project, a VB form that inherits from this one:

------------------------------
Public Class DemographicDataInformedConsent
    Inherits Humanitas.FormsCommon

    TableCode = "SDEM"
------------------------------

...but I simply get: "TableCode is not declared".

What am I doing wrong?

you might need to add the 1st prject as a reference to the second. before you do that the parent class wont be visible.

You would also need to add

imports humanitas

at the beginning of the code for the second project

Importing the base class project in the forms which extend it worked, thank you.

Nice and quick, managed to get me back on track and as such I give an "A". Would have liked an example to make the solution even more complete.
