How to use custom utility classes in Asp.net and C#

Hi,
I am a newbie to .net.   I am developing a small app with asp.net and C#.   I am NOT using visual studio.net.  

My question is:  I would like to write a small utility class with application wide functions.  All the C# files so far have been compiled from aspx.  Should I compile this util class into a .dll?  Please give me a good example / link of how to compile and bind custom c# classes to an aspx page

thanks,
sk

yes, you shuld compile utility class(es) into an assembly  .DLL. Then you'll be able to use them in your code behind .cs files or at server scripts as standard .NET classes. You should add

using assembly_name

line to your code code behind files (.aspx.cs).

And add

<%@ Import Namespace="aseemply_name" %>

to .ASPX files

You could look at

Microsoft.NET\Framework\SDK\Samples\Quickstart\aspplus\samples\webforms\busobjs

on your computer.
