C# Question

There are no components in DLL that can be placed on toolbox

I have a

DatePicker
custom control that I am trying to add to toolbox. The name of the file is
BasicFrame.WebControls.BasicDatePicker.dll
and I go through the procedure of right click in Toolbox > Choose Items and then selecting the file after browsing to it under .NET Framework components.

I however get this error message:


There are no components in that can be placed on toolbox


Why do I get this message and how can I resolve it?

Answer

Have you checked the visibility of the custom classes?

If you haven't declared them as public they will default to internal and hence aren't exposed to visual studio for use
