In this context we use the term UiComponent to define a configured collection of components to create a form or a listing, for example customer_form which is configured in customer_form.xml
How can I create a new uiComponent(e.g. my_customer_form) that extends from existing one(customer_form)?
I'm 90% percent sure there is a way to inherit from existing uiComponents but i can't remember what is the syntax.
For example in my component to write:
<form> ... <some_special_node>customer_form<some_special_node> ... </form>
As a result my new uiComponent has everything the customer_form has and I can add new fields.
Any tips are highly appreciated.
