I'm creating a portal page to display several widgets. All of these widget views should inherit from the basic look and feel of a base widget view (i.e. toolbar up top with title, hide/close buttons etc.). If the base widget changes, all widgets inheriting from it should also change.
I've done this before in Touch 1.x but with the designer i'm not so sure what best practice to apply. At first, I created a WidgetBase view off of a generic component. I then dragged the WidgetBase to create a new "Linked" view off of WidgetBase. What's confusing me is that the new "linked / inherited" view won't let me change it's name (i.e. WeatherWidget, MapWidget etc..) and I can't drag components onto it. At this point, I figure I'm not using "linked" as intended.
Can someone please clarify the point of "linked" views and point me in the right direction?
