Newbee: How to remove items from Toolbox - Entire DLL/Namespace

Greetings,

I imported a DLL into the 'Customize Toolbox', form under the '.NET Framework Components' Tab and now I want to get rid of it entirely. I am not using any of the components listed under the particular Namespace  and would like to remove that Namespace altogether, However, I DO want to preserve some of the other currently Unused Namespace's that are present.

How do I eliminate one Namespace without affecting the others?

Thanks in advance

Hi Bob,

OK Here's what I did and where,

(1) Executed Visual Studio 2003;
(2) Selected `New Project'
(3) Selected 'Visual Basic Projects' under the 'Project Type' header
(4) Selected 'Windows Application' under the 'Templates' header
(5)Clicked on the 'Toolbox' Tab
(6)Selected (clicked) the 'My User Controls' tab
(7)Right click on the 'My User Controls' tab (popup menu)
(8)Selected the 'Add/Remove Items ...' menu item
(9)The 'Customize Toolbox' dialog box is then displayed
(10) Clicked on the '.NET Framework Components' Tab
(11) Then clicked on the 'Browse' button.
(12) I then navigated to the folder that contained the Component DLL that I was interested in and selected it.
(13) All components contained in the DLL were loaded and displayed in the 'Customize Toolbox' dialog box along with the associated Namespace, the Component Name and a Checkbox to Select that item.
(14) I Checked several components then Clicked the 'OK' button
(15) 'My User Controls' tab now contains a list of the Components that I selected.

Now I want to, Not only remove the components from the 'My User Controls' tab (That the easy part, just Un-Check them from within the  'Customize Toolbox' dialog box ) but I also want to remove All components (of a given Namespace) from within the  'Customize Toolbox' dialog box. I guess what I want to do is to Un-register the DLL that I just added. ( how do i do that? )

I hope this better explains my desire.

Well, first of all, there isn't any concept of "unregister" with .NET DLLs.  You should be able to uncheck all the items that you added to the toolbox, and even delete a tab (if you added one).  Then, you can remove the reference to the DLL, and delete the file, if necessary.

Hi Bob

" ....Then, you can remove the reference to the DLL,...."

OK, This is probably what I am after, so how I do I remove the reference and from where?

Expand the References section under the Project.  From the Reference section, right-click on the library reference, and select Remove.  Or left-click on the reference, and hit the <Del> key.

Hi Bob,

Thanks, However I'm not sure which step caused the desired result but they are gone as desired.
