Inherited Controls Question

P: n/a
OK, so VB'2005 let's you build whizzo UserControls with all that
Anchoring and Docking stuff taking care of the layout, so you don't have
to hard-code it all anymore.

But ...

When you then /inherit/ from that UserControl, how in Blue Blazes do you
persuade the Forms Designer /not/ to suspend the layout events that keep
the base Control looking the way it should? The arrangement of controls
within the base control seem to get completely messed up when I start
using the inherited UserControl on a Form; it's as if all the whizzo,
new, automatic stuff has been turned off again.

Do you /really/ have to hard-code the arrangement of [base] controls
into the [base] OnLayout method?

How are inherited Controls /supposed/ to work?

TIA,
Phill W.
