Hi,

I would add :   Can I do it without buying certificates ? If yes ...what the code in JavaScript or VBScript to make it signed ?

Thanks.
Signing your control just gives the user some sense of security that

1) it does what it says it does
2) it hasn't been hacked

There are lots of companies that will issue certificates to you to sign your controls. Verisign and thawte to name 2. Google for it.

Yes, you have to pay for the certificate(s).

'frugle' has a good point - you can always do a self / test cert. When people DL the control in question they will get the message that the control is not signed by a valid authority. Its up to you whether or not this is a big deal.
