I discovered something new and rather interesting yesterday. And by new, I mean new to me, apparently it's been there "forever"!
I was trying to do some testing for my earlier post on handles, and wanted to run an operation on a mapped server. However, the operation was on a form, and not a service, which it needs to be to run mapped. I was just about to create a new service and copy the operation code when I mentioned this off hand in conversation with a colleague of mine, and he mentioned that it was actually very easy to convert a form into a service.
I thought he was about to show me some really clever, well hidden little trick. Alas, it's right there in the "File" menu, and always has been...
So all you have to do is click that and compile, job done! You learn something new every day.
Summary: It's really easy to convert a form into a service, or many other things, and vice versa, which you might need to do if you want to run an operation on a mapped server.
Thanks to Mark R for pointing this out for me.
