Hi ,


I'm writing a user control for my c# application using VS2012 . When I'm adding another windows forms application project to same solution which I created the user control , the user control is showing up on the toolbox window and user control is working fine.But when I create individual project and add reference to .dll file I could not load the user control to toolbox.When I try to add the following message is showing :

"There are no component in <.dll path> that can be placed on the toolbox".

but actually there is a user control inside that dll .


What could be the possible problem ? please help ...

Solution 2

I've solved it at last Big Grin | :-D

The problem was my dll file haven't a strong name.

I followed these links to solve this problem

First I created a new user control

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9yxtkx75(v=vs.85).aspx[^]

Then I looked into the following link to add my control to toolbox window

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9yxtkx75(v=vs.85).aspx[^]

From that link I learned that I should Install my control assembly to the Global Assembly Cache

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dkkx7f79(v=vs.110).aspx

To add to global assembly cache I need to assign a strong name to the dll

I did that and solved my problem ...
