how can I define a base form style for all forms using c#?

For example: an banking application containing same background for all the forms and in the background we have an bank image which need to be used in all.

I know processing in by using Masterpages. Looking some conept implementing it in C#.Net.

Basically you would create your form in the way you wanted it, (call it BaseForm) and then when you add a new form, navigate to Inherited form, and select baseform.

Base form...
public partial class BaseForm : Form
      protected BaseForm()

And now the Single Entry From that inherits it.
public partial class SingleEntry : BaseForm
      protected SingleEntry()

Thanks Rob! But I would like to inherit the background only! not the controls.

On my base forms I have 3 buttons on mine, but I guess you dont have to have any controls there, just the Background image.
