VB .Net Toolbox

Posted on 2006-05-12

In VB6 it was easy to add a new visual control to the toolbox, just choose the component reference and it would be added.

In VB .Net, It's easy to add a reference, but how do I get a visual tool to appear in the toolbox?  I can't seem to figure that part out.

Help please...

    you need to compile your new control in a separate .dll

    right click on the toolbox and select "Add/Remove Items..."
    [Browse] to your .dll and select it
    select [OK]
