Custom Controls - Refresh

I have a set of custom controls in my project. I have added these to my Toolbox.

But when I change some properties in my custom controls, the changes do not seem to be reflected on the forms that already have instances of the custom controls. I am having to delete the instance and re-put there.

Am I missing something? This way I don't see any use of having custom controls, right? Is that how custom controls work? I want the changes I make to the controls to be auto-reflected on all the forms.

Try a Clean Solution and Rebuild solution from  Build menu.  That will assure that the new assembly is copied over.  Also under your References make sure that the it is specifically pointing at the dll file that contains the control. I had a few problems with this in VS 2003 but have not had trouble in VS 2005.
