Greetings,

I have created a custom control based on a picturebox. If I drag it from the tool bar it works great. The code for it is below.

If however; on a code page I add private DRpictureBox e3picbox = new DRpictureBox ( );
I get an error of DRpictureBox is a 'namespace' but used as a 'type'

I have added the reference to the DRpicturebox and added a using for it as well.

What am I missing?

Thanks, Ron

namespace DRpictureBox
      {
      public partial class DRpictureBox : PictureBox
            {
            private string ipAddress = "192.168.1.0";
            private int modbusAddress = 90;

            [
                  Category("Addresses"),
                  Description("IP Address")
            ]
            
            
            public string IP
                  {
                  get { return ipAddress; }
                  set { ipAddress = value; Invalidate ( ); }
                  }

            [
                  Category("Addresses"),
                  Description("Modbus Address")
            ]

            public int Modbus
                  {
                  get { return modbusAddress; }
                  set { modbusAddress = value; Invalidate ( ); }
                  }

            public DRpictureBox ( )
                  {
                  }
            }
      }

I think you'd need to do
DRpictureBox.DRpictureBox

Or change the namespace to not be the same name.
