I've been looking for answers to this problem for awhile, and none of what I find seems to work. I have a program that creates a database, and a form based on that database, where the form fields are movable (the user can drag them around in the form) in Panel1 of a split contianer, and the other panel contains a datagridview. That all works fine for now. What I am having problems with is persistence, when I publish the application and get everything set up, then close it and open it again, everythign is gone. Now, I am assuming this is because the app.config file does not have variables to store all of these settings in because I don't know how many or what the user will be creating.
My best guess is to edit the app.config file as the form is created to create a variable for each field in it. I will still be working on this problem going in that direction, but if anyone has any better suggestions, or if you know how I can do this, I would appreciate that.
