I have my custom Control-Library with several Controls (and other functionality) in it. It works properly ...
What I want to know is how I can modify my Library that if it is imported into the Toolbox of a new Application new Categories are added to the Toolbox (automaticly) and the Controls are added into this Category (instead of into the General-Category).

Until now I accepted it as it is - but now I got a 3rd-party DLL which has this Behaviour - so I want to have it too ... ;)

What I have tried:

Worked with the Attributes for the Control, like ToolboxItem, Description etc.
But this wasn't the right approach ...

It is probably done by the installer by tinkering registry...

I'm sorry ... I don't understand ...
It's directly done when inserting the DLL into the Toolbox ...

I do not know of any way to set category rm within the code, but it can be done manipulating the registry, and that may what 3rd party done during the installation (means they changed the registry from the installer)
