A first question post from a novice programmer... any help appreciated:

I have developed a com visible UserControl in VB.NET (VS2010). It works fine but when built it gives me a series of warnings similar to:

Type library exporter warning processing ..... Warning: Non COM visible value type 'System.Windows.Forms.AutoSizeMode' is being referenced either from the type currently being exported or from one of its base types.

I have Imports System.Windows.Forms and my UserControl makes use of several controls such as Label, RTB etc.

Done lots of web searching on this but not finding a solution I can make sense of!

Any pointers please?

Is the assembly and all other required types are set as COM visible

Thanks Lakamraju, I have selected 'Register for COM Interop' and 'Make assembly COM visible' in my project properties. I am not sure if that is enough though. I am testing with just one class, a UserControl, in the project and defined as:
<ProgId("myProgName"), ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDual), Guid("2******guid_here")> _
Public Class myClassName

It appears I only get these warninging with ClassInterfaceType set to AutoDual. If I use either AutoDispatch or None there are no warnings. I am learning a bit about the differences now. AutoDual is 'strongly discouraged'! ...

Have you gone into your project properties, Compile tab, and checked "Register for COM interop"??

Thanks Dave, as you will see from my previous comment I do have this selected.
