Inherited form problem

hi to all
this is the problem about inheritence. I have designed a form with some
essential controls which are required for every form which will
inherited from it. for example i have Button1 on parent form and this
button is visible to me on inherited form.
The problem is:
I have written a click event of the button1 on both of the forms. tell
me the way if i click the button on inherited form only parents' click
event will be called and iherited form's evend wil not be called.

Plz guide me in this regard

Thans in advance

I would suggest not writing a click event in the inherited form. If you
really need that there, then in the logic of that click event, you could
branch to the MyBase.Button1_ Click() event instead of processing the
inherited form's code.

Hi,
This is from F. Balena's book "Visual Basic 2005: The Language". In the
base form, delegate the base forms btnBotton1.clic k event to a Protected
Overridabe subroutine with the name OnButton1Click. for example:
Private Sub btnButton1_Clic k(byval Sender as Object, ....etc
OnButton1Click( e)
end sub

Protected Overridable Sub OnButton1Click( e as EventArgs)
"your code for the base form here"
end sub
then in the derived form:
Protected Overrides Sub OnButton1Click( e as EventArgs)
Then if you want the base form OnButton1Click to run .. call it ...
MyBase.OnButton 1Click(e)
and if you dont want it to run ...don't call it.

Hello, Asad,

I'm not sure that I understand the problem.

Why can't you just put the code of the inherited form's event handler
into a conditional block? I.e. something like:

Private Sub Button1_Click(B yVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArg s) _
Handles Button1.Click
If (Appropriate... ) Then
Do actions...
End If
End Sub

Is it actually the code of the event handler in the Base form that you
need to inhibit? In this case, I would either:

a) Define an overridable property to control when the Base form code is
executed. E.g. something like:

Protected Overridable ReadOnly _
Property SkipBaseButtonC lick() As Boolean
Get
Return False
End Get
End Property

Then test this property in the Base form's handler:

Private Sub Button1_Click(B yVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArg s) _
Handles Button1.Click
If (Not SkipBaseButtonC lick) Then
Do actions...
End If
End Sub

Override the property in the inherited form and return either True or
False as appropriate.
or
b) Define a new event in the Base form that includes a "Cancel"
argument. E.g. something like:

Public Event BaseButtonClick (_
ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal eCancel As System.Componen tModel.CancelEv entArgs)

Raise this new event in the Base form handler and only execute the base
form code if the "cancel" property of eCancel is not returned as True.
Then in the inherited form Handle BaseButtonClick instead of Button1.Click.

But let me know if it is something else that you are looking for.

Cheers,
Randy

I guess I would have to know what you mean by "not being able to edit the forms". Does this mean you get an error in the designer when you try to display an inherited form? Does this mean the controls are visible, but you can't move them around? What exactly does it mean? There are a variety of methods for editing visuallly inherited forms and I've never had a problem with it in any version of VS.

Hi, First, sorry for the crosspost, but it seemed appropriate... :) I've come accross what I consider to be a bug, but I don't know if it's already known or not. (VS .Net 2003 Pro - VB.Net) Whilst playing with inherited forms, I created a simple base form containing a single button. I set this buttons' Click event to be public overridable and put "me.Close" in the code.

I am getting strange resizing problems when using an inherited form. Controls are moving themselves seemingly randomly, but reproducibly. "frmBase" is my base class (a windows form), and contains a few controls anchored to the sides of the form.

I have a simple form with a panel that is docked in the base form. The panel has three controls - two buttons and one treeview. I use "Inherited Form" when creating a second form derived from this parent form. The only thing is there are no controls in the inherited form. I made all the base controls "protected".

Hello everyone, My problem is with an inherited Form. The base Form has a few controls on it that are anchored such that they move as the Form is resized.
