Hi:

I'm working on an straight ASP.Net application. (no additional frameworks).

I've got several user controls (not custom controls) which I'd like to be able to package into a DLL for reuse/redistribution across several other applications. Ideally, we'd like to have everything self contained in (.ascx and source files) a DLL which could be added to the target project's references.

When embedding the user controls into .aspx pages, we'd like to be able see those controls in Visual Studio design view.

I've been looking around and seen several possible solutions for this.
Can anyone point me to a clear tutorial/example which will help step me through this process?

Thanks,
JohnB

create a classlibrary  file, move your controls to the class file. the class file will become a .dll when compiled.
