SQL Server 2005 "Connect to Server" Dialog

Hello group,

I am building several Windows C# applications that interact with SQL
Server 2005 databases. Is it possible to re-use the SQL "Connect to
Server" dialog box? Alternatively, can someone suggest a good canned
login form?

I can build my own login form, of course, but would like to avoid
recreating the wheel if at all possible. Also, the SQL Server
Management Studio dialog has several nice-to-have features like
browsing for servers and remembering passwords. Would take some time
to recreate it.

Thanks in advance,

If u trust pepole, just use filedsn http://www.kamath.com/tutorials/tut005_filedsn.asp
otherwise as u suggested build one form with textboxes and build the
connectionstring
or let them (or installer person) enter data, save and reuse
just thoughts...
