Hi,

My application uses a webservice to transfer files from and to a server, now this code is contained within a Form.vb that uses a datagrid with as its datasource a dataset.

Now to make all this more modular I'm trying to create a dll with these elements that performs the same functionalities but I'm struggling with this.

Can anyone give any pointers?

What exactly do you want in your dll ? Just the call to the webservice and return the data to the gui ?
If so, you actually want to create some kind of data (or business) layer between the gui and the webservice ?

im not sure of what youre trying to do

If you want to reuse a form, you can explore the windows control library (im not sure on how you would be using this via web service)

if you want it more modular, you separate each in layers (like what Dhaest mentioned) thru Class Library

The problem I have is the following:

While uploading/downloading/moving/copying/ etc. the different stages are stored in a dataset as well as in a sql database via webservice. The datagrid has as its datasource this dataset, how can I create a dll where I'm able to tell the dll use datagridX(located in the project where I'd be using the dll)?
