Code as a DLL or Control?

Hi Experts,

Now I'm not sure if this is possible, but I'd like to convert the following code into either a control, or a DLL. The code below currently sits in a menuitem procedure which when clicked, takes data stored in a text file and sends it to a pre-defined web page.

What I need is to have the text elements of the code i.e msgbox text, configurble as part of a control with properties to set or as a configurable DLL if there is such a thing? The most important part though is the web request create, Ideally I want it so that I can enter a number in a control poroperty and the code creates the temp variables?

ProgressBar1.Visible = True
        ProgressBar1.Value = 10
        Try
            If File.Exists(strAppDir & "\import.txt") = True Then
 
                Dim fsa As New FileStream(strAppDir & "\import.txt", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)
                'declaring a FileStream to open the file named import.txt with access mode of reading
                Dim da As New StreamReader(fsa)
                da.BaseStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)
 
                Dim tempa As String
 
                'Send the data to the script
                Do While da.Peek() > -1
                    Dim temp As String()
                    tempa = da.ReadLine
 
                    Dim fl As Int16 = 0
                    Dim i2 As Int16 = 0
 
                    temp = tempa.Split(" ")
 
                    Dim req As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(script & "?1=" & temp(0) & "&2=" & temp(1) & "&3=" & temp(2) & "&4=" & temp(3) & "&5=" & temp(4) & "&6=" & temp(5) & "&7=" & temp(6) & "&8=" & temp(7) & "&9=" & temp(8) & "&10=" & temp(9) & "&11=" & temp(10) & "&12=" & temp(11) & "&13=" & temp(12) & "&14=" & temp(13) & "&15=" & temp(14) & "&16=" & temp(15) & "&17=" & temp(16) & "&18=" & temp(17) & "&19=" & temp(18) & "&20=" & temp(19) & "&21=" & temp(20) & "&22=" & temp(21) & "&23=" & temp(22) & "&24=" & temp(23) & "&25=" & temp(24) & "&26=" & temp(25) & "&27=" & temp(26) & "&28=" & temp(27) & "&29=" & temp(28) & "&30=" & temp(29) & "&31=" & temp(30) & "&32=" & temp(31) & "&33=" & temp(32) & "&34=" & temp(33) & "&35=" & temp(34) & "&36=" & temp(35) & "&37=" & temp(36) & "&38=" & temp(37) & "&39=" & temp(38) & "&40=" & temp(39) & "&41=" & temp(40) & "&42=" & temp(41) & "&43=" & temp(42) & "&44=" & temp(43) & "&45=" & temp(44) & "&46=" & temp(45) & "&47=" & temp(46) & "&48=" & temp(47) & "&49=" & temp(48) & "&50=" & temp(49) & "&51=" & temp(50) & "&52=" & temp(51) & "&53=" & temp(52) & "&54=" & temp(53) & "&55=" & temp(54) & "&56=" & temp(55) & "&57=" & temp(56) & "&58=" & temp(57) & "&59=" & temp(58) & "&60=" & temp(59) & "&61=" & temp(60) & "&62=" & temp(61) & "&63=" & temp(62) & "&64=" & temp(63) & "&65=" & temp(64) & "&66=" & temp(65) & "&67=" & temp(66))
                    Dim resp As WebResponse = req.GetResponse()
                    resp.Close()
 
                Loop
                ProgressBar1.Value = 100
                da.Close()

                ProgressBar1.Value = 0
                ProgressBar1.Visible = False
                MsgBox("Data transmission successful.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "Project MFD")
            End If
 
        Catch ex As IndexOutOfRangeException

No GUI is required, but I need to be able to set properties, is it just a case of copying this code and creating a DLL? I have never done one...
