Ensure Code Is Deleted When A Control Is Deleted

When a control is deleted from a form, any code behind that control is not deleted. It still exists in the code in the General area. Such stranded code might not be a problem except that it increases the size of your EXE, consumes memory, and makes for sloppy work. After deletion, if a control is placed on the form with the same name as the deleted control, the stranded code will relocate to the new control, as long as the event name is the same. A programmer that does not want this code left in (and who would?) must manually delete each instance of stranded code.
