What is the issue? Custom form property is not different from the properties you normally defines.

Minor Edit for Grammar.

Do you mean add a property to the Form class itself? If so, you can't but there are two easy solutions.

1. Create a new class derived from Form and use that in place when you need it.
C#
public class MyFormBase : Form
{
    // ...
    private int id;

    /// <summary>
    /// Gets or sets the identifier.
    /// </summary>
    public int ID
    {
        get{ return id; }
        set{ id = value; }
    }
}

So when adding a new form, change the declaration
C#
public partial class Form1 : MyFormBase
{
    // ...
    // Form1 instances automatically have ID property
}


2. Use Extension Methods[^]

Just add it. If you have a specific issue with doing so, post your code and explain it.

These comments do not relate to your original question. Have a look at this forum post which explains how: http://www.codeproject.com/Forums/1649/Csharp.aspx?fid=1649&select=3573386&fr=276#xx0xx
Basically, child forms raise events which are listened to by parent forms and parent forms set properties/call methods on child forms.
