Customizable Winforms app
I'm trying to figure out the best way to make my winforms app customizable by my end users. Basically, I want to be able to let users add and delete their own textboxes and lables and then make those fields, writeable back to the database. I work for a large law firm and each individual office wants the ability to create and customize forms for their own needs.
Unfortunately that's not an option for us right now. Any other thoughts?
How about using an xml definition per form? This way on the initialization of the form the controls are created according to the definition (which includes parameters for database binding).
