Hi –

Just wondering if there is anything new on this topic. I have found that I am able to copy controls from one page to another within a given form – but I don’t believe that there is a way to copy controls (and their behaviors) from one form to another. I would really like that.

We have couple of projects running in parallel and one team has developed a complex control to handle page navigation. If I want to utilize that control and its behaviors I have to do a ‘save as’ to create a new form from that one. However, if I have also ‘coded’ a great deal of functionality in my own form – there is no way to merge the functionality of the two forms together – due to the fact that I can neither inherit from an ancestor form – nor save controls in a control library. How far away are you from introducing the ability to save controls or control groups in addition to saving forms? Is there a way for me to copy a control from one form to another (apart from ‘save as’) that I haven’t thought of? THANKS!
