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()

                File.Delete(strAppDir & "\import.txt")

                ProgressBar1.Value = 0

                ProgressBar1.Visible = False

                MsgBox("Data transmission successful.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "Project MFD")

            End If
 

        Catch ex As IndexOutOfRangeException

            MsgBox("An unauthorised manual modification of the transmission data has occurred, please contact support for assistance.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "Project MFD Error")
 

        Catch ex As Exception

            MsgBox("One of the following errors has occurred:" & (Chr(13)) & (Chr(13)) & "1. MDA signal is weak. (Perform soft reset with the stylus, move to a better area, try again)" & (Chr(13)) & (Chr(13)) & "2. MDA transmitter is switched off. (Call support)", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "Project MFD Transmission Error")

            ProgressBar1.Value = 0

            ProgressBar1.Visible = False
 

        End Try

If you want GUI then control if not DLL

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...
