Hi,

It's good to see this topic raised again - when I started using Genero it was one of the first things I wanted to be able to do (Search for thread: "Is it possible to open a group from one form inside another form?" Reply #6 on: February 28, 2008, 08:53:12 PM ) so as I could reuse the form elements from common modules in the main program window when those modules got called, instead of popping up a new window.  I ended up cloning the module's form sections (at the group level under the layout section with matching attributes  section) into the main program form to have it look good for a couple of programs, but this is not very good for maintenance so of limited use.

Reuben indicates it can be done with the pre-processor, but I can't really get my head around this and it seems complicated. So maybe Fourjs can come up with a friendly method to achieve this in the code? It seems like such an obvious thing to want to do once you get into the way Genero can display forms and hide/unhide groups, etc...

Regards,
  Bryce Stenberg.

Bryce,

Send me two of your forms if you want.
