Replace Base Class of Textboxes on Form With My User Control

Replace Base Class of Textboxes on Form With My User Control

(OP)
VB.net Windows Forms. I want to replace all of the textboxes on my form with a user control I have created. Is there a proper (easy) way to replace the base class of textboxes on my form with my user control without having to place the new control on the form and removing the original? Can I simply open the designer files and manually change them to the new class?

You should be able to do a search & replace, and change "As Textbox" to "As <YourControlType>". Then rebuild and it should be good to go.

Of course, make a backup of the entire project before you do this.
