Hey guys, might want to check this link out:

http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/SharpFormEditorDemo.asp

One of the codeproject members just posted a .Net C# forms designer, and the resemblance to our own Kixforms.Net Designer is striking. He basically talks about "the issues" with doing this - the same issues that Benny had to deal with last year, eg. he had to implement his own home-grown control tracker just like Benny did.

Check it out.

So why did he write this in the first place? I thought the Visual Studio already had this built-in. Didn't read the whole article Embarassed

It does have it built in. Based on this quote:

I hope, from this, you can deduce what's happening under the covers when you rely on the .NET framework to implement your own Forms Editor.


Looks like he wrote it as an educational thing ... to help one appreciate what happens "under the covers" in Visual Studio.

He also adds:

I decided to write this article not because I wanted to give some classes as replacements for the corresponding functionalities wrapped by the .NET framework. My intention is to illustrate some basic principles on how to write a Forms editor and give a concrete implementation of it. I think the implementation of the C# RectTracker class and the transparent control can also be applied to other circumstances, such as shape edit and picture/diagram edit.
