    Question TabControlEx and dll placement

    Hi, very basic question for you all:

    I just grabbed a .dll file which is an exension of the existing forms tabControl container.

    Can someone point me as to where / how you add such dll files in Visual Studio.

    Thanks

    In your solution explorer, on the right of VS, look for References, then right click and select Add Reference. This is assuming your dll is managed code, otherwise you'll need to use p/invoke.

    This is what I thought, but adding the file as a reference has not had any effect on the original TabControl

    I'll have to investigate further into the file itself I suppose....

    Ah..... I found the path to the new control in Object Browser and then just changed the references in the designer.cs fil for the form and it works.

    Thnaks for the confirmation on refs.
