How to hide constituent UserControls in my UserControl VB.NET Project

Hello everyone

As a part of my Software development Project, I built a composite Usercontrol (much like an old Outlook Bar), that's made of several different constituent User Controls. The "OutlookBar" Build and works just fine. The problem I encounter is, that when the corresponding dll is added to the project, all the controls (main and constituent) are added to the toolbox.

How do I show only main Control, and none of the constituent ones in the toolbox?


Thank you

I had already found a solution

There is an attribute called ToolboxItem that defines, whether the control is visible to tohe toolbox or not. If set to false, the control is not visible in the toolbox something like:

Imports System.ComponentModel
<ToolboxItem(False)> Public Class SidePanel
' User code here
End Class


Best regards
