I need some links, articles, references or perhaps your own explanation (as detail as possible) on how to create a library of custom controls. I have done some testing on creating user controls but I will be creating at least 10 custom controls for my projects therefore I want them in a library so I don't have to add them one by one.

Actually I'm new to this whole creating your own control thing so extra information on this topic too will be much appreciated (points will be adjusted)

Points will be adjusted as you give more information.

Thanks heaps :)

a single project (.vbp) can contain many custom controls (.ctl). You will compile the project into a OCX and all your controls will then be available all together.

Hi emoreau,

Thanks for the info, I discovered that too couple of hours after submitting the question. Silly me.. :P
Anyhoo, to be fair to everyone, could you provide more information on creating controls or things that are related to that? Perhaps, links, articles, tutorials, etc :)

Thanks :)
