Learning ASP.NET ... Where to Store Functions

Hello,

I have developed a number of MS Access applications in the past, and am now learning ASP.NET (version 4) in order to develop web applications.

In MS Access, the VB code is stored in either the form / report which uses it exclusively (private subs / functions), or in a module (public subs / functions).

In ASP.NET, I know that each aspx file has a .vb file with code that belongs to that page. My question is in how to organize the "public" code that can be called from multiple pages ... where should these public subs/functions be stored?

Thanks in advance -

If you just want a file full of public methods, rather than going the OO approach of actually wrapping them as objects, then you can just add a class file to your project and mark your methods as Public and Shared.

i.e.
Public Class SharedMethods
    Public Shared Function MyMethod() As String
       Return "Hello World"
    End Function
End Class

Create Class and store it in App_Code folder to access to anywhere in application.
