I am relatively new in C#, but I have created the form with bindingsource1 on it and some other controls like C1FlexGrid. Withing application as far as I can tell form works. I have to develop mire forms that similar to the first one in design and the way the grid has it bindings. I expected to be able to make a copy - Copy of Form1 and rename it into Form2. Then I go thru Form 2 Initialize Component and change BindingSource.DataSource. Something happening during this process that affects Form1 .BindingSsource and Forms1.cs loses the reference to BindingSource1. Sorry if the explanation is vague, but the question is there a correct process to make a copy of the form1 into form2 and dont break Form1.
