I am writing software in VB.NET 2003 due to our customers only having framework 1.1 on their computers. Upgrading their framework is not an option. I have created (and successfully used) a couple inherited custom controls by including the .vb files for these controls in the same project. This way the controls are compiled into the same EXE and do not require external DLL files.
My question is this: Is there a way to make these controls appear in the toolbox without creating a separate control library? In 2005, controls included in this way are automatically added to the toolbox. It is beginning to be a real pain to have to drop the control that I inherited from onto the form and then edit the Form Designer code manually.
Thanks in advance.
