Default How to get controls into VS?

I just got the book today, it looks exciting, but it jumps right into programming the ASPxGridView. I've been learning asp .net 3.5, gone through a few books, so I'm not really a newbie, but is there documentation anywhere on how to get started with the controls - how to import into Vis Studio, etc?

Ken,

Is there an install.exe on the CD? I use the DevExpress controls and I have always had to install them via an installation app. After running the install and going into VS the controls would then show in the toolbox.

Not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean "I want to write my own ASP.NET control and have it appear in Visual Studio"? In which case the book doesn't cover that, I'm afraid. It's written from the viewpoint that you already have (or are about to get) our (that is, DevExpress') ASP.NET controls.

If you mean "How do I get those free controls on the CD to appear in Visual Studio?" then there is an install program on the CD that will do the job.

Cheers, Julian

After you have run the .exe app, you have a new item in the Program list.
Then you have all the DevExpress controls in you Visual Studio 2008 toolbox, and you can use them like another "normal" ASP.NET control.
