Clone VOWindows in X#

Post by ArneOrtlinghaus »

Nearly always we create new VO-Windows in VO in the following manner:
- We open the Windows Editor
- We click "Open..."
- We select one of the existing dialog windows of the DLL
- We click "Clone"
- We have a new window with all of our standard settings in a correct manner as we need it (Exact size of tab window, correct settings as inherit from, some controls to copy)

Is there a similar possibility in X#?

Hi Arne,

There isn't one build in way to do it now, but will add a feature request. For now, there are two ways to do it in alternative ways:

1. Select All and copy/paste all controls from source to destination window
2. Create a new window, close it, then open the .xsfrm files for the source and destination window and again copy/paste the contents (keeping the name of the new window intact of course!)

Hi Chris,
please add this feature request also for XIDE (both the VO Window Editor and the Windows Forms Editor).
Currently I'm copying this by hand. In VO, I really newer start with a window from scratch - I start always from a similar one, even if I need only to keep the "OK" and "Cancel" buttons.

Hi Chris!

Wouldn't it be better to support VS export template mechanism? I tried it but seems not to be working at the moment. This way we could have different kinds of templates without the need to do all this copy & paste stuff.

Regards

Hi Wolfgang!

Interesting idea...not sure myself if that's possible for the VOWED, as I have no idea how this feature works, will let Robert give his input on that.
