Compile a class in to a .dll file in Visual Studio 2008

Hi,

Sorry for such lame questions, but I'm a total newbie at ASP.NET and Visual Studio.

I'm building this web site in C#/ASP.NET.

I have a class that I want to compile in to a .dll file.

I have two questions:

1) Should I create a new project just for the class or can I use my site's directory structure (namely App_Code folder) ?
If I should create a new Project, what should I choose ? "New Project -> Visual C# -> Web -> ???? here I don't know ???"

2) How do I, in Visual Studio 2008 compile the file as a .dll ? I can't figure out any option for that in the menus.

I've already googled about this, but not only I couldn't find any satisfactory answer, also I didn't find anything about Visual Studio 2008, only 2005 or younger.

Any help would be appreciated.

Warm Regards,
Mário Gamito

You need to add a new new project to your solution and select the "Class Library" project template. This will compile as a .DLL.
