IResettable - a suggestion for the next version of WinForms

Almost every project I work on, I end up with some variant of an
IResettable interface - so that controls can be reset to a default
value. Controls have a ResetText method, but that's not much use for
checkboxes, and you can't set a default for things to be reset back to,
on a control by control basis.

Does anyone else find themselves using similar functionality? Because
if there's enough of us, it might be something we can push for in
future versions of WinForms (or whatever replaces them).

Andrew,

That replacement (or rather, the next generation of it) will be the
Windows Presentation Foundation. You might want to look at that.

Additionally, you should check out the product feedback center, located
at:

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/produc...k/default.aspx

You can make suggestions there.
