Default User Control Constant Error Correction


I have a project that I am designing a User Control to use within. I started a Windows Forms Project, then I am laying out the User Control in-project. I don't want to compile the user control as a DLL, I want to keep it as a part of my final form project.

The problem I have is: Every time I run the project, an Exception Error pops up which says "Type 'ApplicationName.ControlOnFormName' is not defined. If I select the top suggestion... It changes the Form Designer code as follows:

Me.ControlOnFormName = New ProjectName.UserControlName()

Me.ControlOnFormName = New Global.ProjectName.UserControlName()

Now... The application will run fine, over and over, until I close the Form Designer. The Form Designer, upon closing, sets the code back to the top line. (No Global)

(Which is the never-ending loop: I correct - It runs fine - I close the Designer - It errors...) Now... The .exe file always runs if I build after the correction... : : stumped : :

Why does this happen??? And... is there a better way to keep a User Control within the project without having to reference a dll????
