 Form properties


I'm migrating from Access to VB5.0 and getting a little confused.  I've
tried creating an about box using the About Dialog option on the Add
form menu item.  No problem in generating the form or customising it.
What seems to happen is when I save the aboutfrm and launch it fom a
nother form my customisations seem to disappear.  This is confusing  Any
pointers as to where I may be going wrong

 Form properties
The about box wizard is using references to the app properties.
click on the properties of each of the lables and fields and look
at the form startup code:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.Caption = "About " & App.Title
    lblVersion.Caption = "Version " & App.Major & "." & App.Minor & "." & _
    lblTitle.Caption = App.Title
End Sub

This was very confusing to me at first too.

I hope this helps
