    how about component authoring?

    I'm having trouble finding out if Visual Studio 2005 lets you program components
    that can be dropped on a form in the designer. Does anyone know?

    All I see in the templates are "Class Library" .. nothing about Compontent or Control.

    Searching is a waste due to collisions about dropping components on forms when you
    create applications.

    I used to have C# "Standard" edition when it first came out and I did components then.
    Maybe I have to go to 2008 beta?

    Split from this long dead thread - Visual Studio Express for free
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You mean custom controls basically. You just create a class library and implement custom controls in there.
