What happened to Frames

P: n/a
In vb6 I used frames to hold whole screens of variables
and shifted the frames around the form as needed. I do
not see frames in vb.net. Does anyone know what has
replaced frames?

'GroupBox' and/or 'Panel'.

Joel,
In addition to the other comments, I would consider using UserControls
instead of "Frames", this way the logic for all the controls is contained
within the UserControl itself, hopefully reducing the size of the form
itself.

Of course due to the logic of the form, a User Control may be more pain then
gain.

Hope this helps
Jay
