copy of .net Form
Posted on 2012-09-03
I have a form within my UI that contains some basic information; however, it comprises approx 14 input text boxes, various labels, and 4 checkboxes. This basic functionality needs to be used on approx 27 different "screens"; hence, my objective is to try to copy the basic form, and then add additional functionality on the added forms....
BEFORE I tried to just do a copy and paste, and then re-name the copied form, I did do a backup!!
Very glad I did, I get numerous errors when this is tried..... Hopefully this should be rather straightforward, but I am just lost....
If there is another approach that can accomplish the same, and would conform to best practices, PLEASE PLEASE point me in the right direction..... I can see that I may be creating a monster because at some point, the basic functionality I have already designed may change.... Then I'll have about 27 different places to make changes!!!

Thanks in advance,
