Half a job

I just learned that a control I’m trying to use isn’t that customisable šŸ˜¦ I need to allow a user to enter ftp settings and fortunately someone here has written a custom control that does just that; it allows the user to enter the server, username, password etc. When they wrote this their requirement was to use ftp or not, so they added a nice little check box to say use ftp settings. My spec states that they have to have ftp. Here’s the half a job, there’s no way to set the custom control to always require the ftp settings! I can’t set a flag to say always require, and I can’t make the check box invisible as it isn’t public. Code reuse it great, when you can reuse it šŸ˜¦ EndRant.
