Gridview class object

Given a gridview class file as follows:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
using System.Web;

namespace RealWorld.Grids
    /// <summary>
    /// BulkEditGridView allows users to edit multiple rows of a gridview at once, and have them
    /// all saved.
    /// </summary>
    Designer("System.Web.UI.Design.WebControls.GridViewDesigner, System.Design, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"),
    public class BulkEditGridView : System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView
        //key for the RowInserting event handler list
        public static readonly object RowInsertingEvent = new object();

        private List<int> dirtyRows = new List<int>();
        private List<int> newRows = new List<int>();

        /// <summary>
        /// Default Constructor
        /// </summary>
        public BulkEditGridView()

        /// <summary>
        /// Modifies the creation of the row to set all rows as editable.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="rowIndex"></param>
        /// <param name="dataSourceIndex"></param>
        /// <param name="rowType"></param>
        /// <param name="rowState"></param>
        /// <returns></returns>
        protected override GridViewRow CreateRow(int rowIndex, int dataSourceIndex, DataControlRowType rowType, DataControlRowState rowState)
            return base.CreateRow(rowIndex, dataSourceIndex, rowType, rowState | DataControlRowState.Edit);

How can it be simply used to instantiate a gridview without adding its DLL into VS2005 toolbox? This is to avoid more work and maintenance. Thanks.

if you add the Class file to the project, then in the web.config you can add:

<add namespace="RealWorld.Grids" tagPrefix="MyControls"/>

On a .aspx page, this will allow you to do:

<MyControls:BulkEditGridView .... />

When doing this you may have to build (which will fail) close and re-open visual studios and build again (it should succeed)
