Hi all. I got a piece of code that I have to use as a class. It gets added to the project every time, the accessed from the code of the forms.
It is for ethernet communication to an industrial radio.
So right now it's a just a class called MK
Is it possible to compile a class into a DLL which then can be just referenced to each application? If so how do I go about it? I can create a DLL application and compile it but then when I reference it I can't access the functions.


Yes its possible. If your project is a class library, the classes gets compiled to a DLL when you build it. Im sure you're already familiar with how to reference the DLL to the other projects. The only lacking thing I think, is that you haven't put in the code the import namespace of the DLL you referenced. This is why, I think, you are not able to access the classes on the code. Hope this helps.

Thanks Dave
Make sure the functions that you want accesible are declared as Public not Private.
