WEB FORMS and datasetS (do I have to repeat the file definition in every web form?)

I am working on vb.net.
I have a project with 35 web forms and an access file with 18 tables.
Until now I have defined the oledbadapters in every form by dragging the tables from the server explorer tool box.
This is not a good idea because every time that I make a change on the database design I have to drag the new definition on 35 web forms and I have to create the datasets again. This is boring and time consuming!

The question is:

how about if you write a class that has all the data access functions that returns datasets, and use this class in all your forms. This way if you change the database, you just have to change the class.

Thank you for your answer:

But I don't understan what do you call  "Data access functions that returns datasets"
I mean, the wizard generates in the web form code like this

Me.OleDbSelectCommand1 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand

Me.OleDbInsertCommand1 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
Me.OleDbUpdateCommand1 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
Me.OleDbDeleteCommand1 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
Me.OleDbConnection1 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
Me.OleDbDataAdapter1 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
Me.DataSet11 = New globales.DataSet1
CType(Me.DataSet11, System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize).BeginInit()
Me.OleDbSelectCommand1.Connection = Me.OleDbConnection1

How can I access to this from another form ?
Can you give me an example?

Thank you in advance !

How to Make Web Forms from other Web Forms
In putting together an ASP.NET application for a biz application, we have come to the point where there are three different types of basic forms which have, for the most part, been perfected. Now its is a matter of cloning those forms for various uses and modifying or adding code to suit the particular need. Copy and paste works OK, but there is a lot of changing of certain words, etc. Is there a way in ASP.NET to take these basic forms, turn them into classes or templates, create forms from them, then add or overwrite code? ?

Web Form vs. Web Content Form
If you don't mind, I would like to know what is the difference between those two items, when I go to add a new item I see both of those and I don't know what the difference is.  A content form is for use with a masterpage. A web form is a standalone web page. If you select web content form, you will then have to specify a masterpage for it. and what is a master page used for?  Hi, a master page is used to give a constant look and theme to a site, without having to duplicate code. So basically you can put your header, menu, nav and footer on a master page. Then a...

Web Form embedded in another Web Form

I don't want to host the calculator on the same server as the accounting page. I.e. I want them to have distinct URLs. Classically, I would do this using frames, but is there a better way using ASP?

calling a web form from another web form
I would like to know what is the best way to open a web form from another web form. I would like to call it from a button control. Thanks Well, if I've grasped your question right, there are many methods to do that: 1)Response.Redirect > To navigate to another page from code and is equal to clicking a hyperlink. I suggest this as I think it's closer to your question. 2)Server.Transfer > This ends the current web form and begins a new web form. It's usable when you want to pass some variables i.e (Label1.Text) to the next immediate page. It's not safe though and not used to send p...

can someone one give me difference between web form and mobile web form and which or where or when i'm using the forms?
thanks Marc Hi Marc, Based on my understanding, you want to know the differences between the ASP.NET web application and ASP.NET mobile web application. If I have misunderstood you, please feel free to let me know. The ASP.NET forms are used to develop the ASP.NET pages for desktop browsers and The ASP.NET mobile forms are used to develop the ASP.NET pages for mobile device browsers. When we create the ASP.NET mobile web forms pages, we can use nearly all the features of ASP.NET. But there are a couple of compatibility issues: Error Handling and Reporting. Tracing. Using Redi...

Comparison Web Form <-> Mobile Web Form
Hi all,Is there any overview of the (dis-)advantages using Mobile Web Forms compared with normal Web Form? I know I need to use Mobile Web Form if it should be accessible with handhelds, but does it make sense using Mobile web Form when the webpage should not be available for handhelds?Thanks!      The benefit on using the mobile web form is the ability to use the mobile controls that had adaptive rendering for different handsets. The built in features of controls like the objectlist and selectionlist are great and and form paging is also a neat thing.If you are not developing for portable hand held devices like pdas/mobile phones then don't even look into mobile web forms. Mobile web forms have a very limited set controls and unless you use device specific filtering (which gets ugly maintaining a code base and type safety) you cannot use ASP.NET controls and HTML, javascript etc.  ...

Open web page in IE and populate fields on the form from my web form
To the dot net Knights.  Many humble thanks in advance from a dot net surf. We have an vb application that opens multiple instances of IE object, each to different web pages.  It then takes information from the current record in the app, populates fields on each of the web pages, and them submits the forms.  We are then able to look at the resulting web pages and quickly get the info we're looking for.This prevents us from having to manually navigate to each web site, enter the same information and then wait for the page to open.  If there is a captcha control, we only need to enter it and then manually hit submit. We are moving our systems to the web.  My question:  Is there a way to do this from a web form?The follow-up questions would be, where do I go to find out how to open multiple tabs in IE 7 to do the same thing?Thank you in advance,David C...

Implementing .Net Form into an APS.net web form, can this be done
