I want to know the proper way to Build/Publish a user control and then I want to use the control in an existing web app. I built a GridView control that I want to implement into this app and replace each of the grids in the app to use this new user control. I currently have the control in a Test app on a form but if I want to publish just the control(and the classes needed) without the form I have it on, how can I go about doing that? Should I take out all the code I need just for the control and create a new project and add everything I need and then do a build and publish it to the server, with the app I want to add it to, and use it like that? Ive never done this before so I want to do it the correct way.
FYI, I am using VS 2012 (VB code base) using .NET framework 4.0
Any help would be greatly appreciated....
