Common files produced by data assist, are they different?

Common files produced by data assist, are they different?


These files seem to be consistently created when running data assist, and I am wondering if each time data assist is run, is it creating different code suited to the pages, or is it stock code that can be used in all other data assist created pages/applications? I've looked, and on the face of it, it seems to be the same.

If they are stock code and the same across the board, are there any other files that are common in other instances? Is there a definitive list available?

I'm asking this because I am consistently finding myself building identical pages from one website to another, and I have started to build small modules now which I pick up and place into larger projects. Modules such as user registration and log in, navigation system, SEO, news, events, and so on, but each time I drop one of these modules in place, something in the forms seem to break - primarily form validation and how the failed validation always remains visible once the module is added to another site.

those files are stock and do not change.

there is not a definitive list of files that do not change, that would be a pretty big list.

most helper files do not change. for some extensions like eCart, an objet file will be created in the WA_eCart folder with the name of the eCart object.

Universal Email will create a mail setting file in the webassist/email folder for each instance that is added. and if the option to crate a file to manage the email is selected a template file will be created.

other extensions like pro maps do the same, but the core helper files do not change from instance to instance.
