VBb.Net   Handle Form Events in a Partial Class

Hey,

I am trying to create a template for other developers to use as a base for future application.   The template is basically a program with a lot of the UI work already done.  I was hoping to separate that “common” code out to a different file using a PARTIAL CLASS so the developers wouldn't have to deal with it unless they wanted too.  

I am running into an issue because a lot of the “common” code is handles base form and control events for the form.   All of the control events fire fine, but the form events aren’t being caught in the partial class.  Is that expected?

I don't quite see what you are talking about...do you have a little bit of code to highlight what you mean?  Partial classes are compiled as one unit, so the event should be working...

Another idea would be to compile those forms into a DLL and then inherit from those forms.

Not sure what I was doing wrong yesterday, but today when i came in and gave it all another try the me.load was handled properly.  

Thanks you Code & Learned for your input.  I am going to give credit to Learned just because his statement about Partial classes being compiled into one unit forced me to follow it through one time because it should have worked as expected.
