My question is quite simple and i'm not sure there is a solution. But if you have any suggestions to go round, it would be great as i'm not really content of what i'm doing so far.
Here is the problem :
Let say you have a base form named FORM and 3 derived forms (FORM1...).
On the base form you have several controls (buttons, textbox, labels, more than 10) taking all space of the form.
On the derived forms you can see them all (design- and run-time)
Very easy so far.
Let say now that i wan't to replace a textbox by a combobox ONLY on FORM1.
I add my combobox at the right place, i make my textbox non-visible by setting the property and all is ok at run-time... but not in the designer ! where i don't have the place to put my inherited textbox cause it's still visible at design-time and my form is full of controls.
To make even more simple, i would like to prevent the designer from showing, in a particular derived form, a control inherited from a base form.
My "solution" for the moment is to set the location property of my textbox at "1000;1000" so it is not visible in the designer.
Thanks for your help
