How to create a header file when making a dll

I have a created a class project in vb.net 2005 and have created the dll. I also need to create a header file so I can load the library into matlab. How do you create a header file in vb.net?

i got following from some site

1. You could package the library as a COM DLL with an embedded type library.  
 
The compiler can then create a header file from this DLL (using #import) so  
 
you have only a single thing (the DLL) that needs to be distributed to the  
 
developers using the library.  
 
2. You could package the library as a managed (.NET) assembly, which  
 
includes rich meta data.  Someone targeting the library can then get the  
 
definitiong using the #using directive.  
 
But for native non-COM development, you'll typically just distribute the  
 
DLL, the associated import library (for static linking against the DLL - no  
 
LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress) and the header file(s) to your developers.
