Ensure Code Is Deleted When A Control Is Deleted

Ensure Code Is Deleted When A Control Is Deleted

When a control is deleted from a form, any code behind that controlis not deleted. It still exists in the code in the General area. Such strandedcode 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 controlis placed on the form with the same name as the deleted control, the strandedcode will relocate to the new control, as long as the event name is thesame. A programmer that does not want this code left in (and who would?)must manually delete each instance of stranded code.
