Using a form, from a dll, to maintain properties in My.Settings
I have a document (attached to this question) that outlines the code I am using, and that some how I want to include in my other projects (as a dll). The end result, is that I want allow my users to update their data source names in the programs they use (which is what the dll is intended to do).
This works great for the Data Source Names (dsn) that are included in the dll's project, but if I include this project (as a dll), it won't reference the values in the parent program's My.Settings list. It is still looking for a list of My.Settings for the local project (dll).
By this, I mean that I run a program (ex. Project 1) that uses the DSNMaintenance dll. I want the DSNMaintenance.dll to look at Project 1's My.Setting list, and not it's own.
Now, I could just include the form from the project, and it works great, but, if I wanted to make a change to that form, I'd have to update it in every project I use.
What do I need to change in my DSNMaintenance project to expose the My.Settings list of the parent project that references the dll?
