Hello Experts -

Before I get myself into trouble, can you tell me how I might copy a form to a second form (which I intend to modify) within the same project? The environment is VB.NET.

I don't want to call this form in a different way. I just want to take advantage of all the code and controls placement as a good place to start coming up with a second somewhat-different form.

Just right-click on the form in the solution explorer and choose "Copy". Then right-click on the project and choose "Paste". That will create a copy of the form which you can then rename.
