Default Chapter 14 - User Controls

on Page 467 it says that when I build the solution the control will automatically be added to the tool bar, but it does not.

On same page under try it out step 3 I don't get a "MyNamespaceControl" in the components tab (or anywhere in the toolbox).

Is this a procedure problem or is the book wrong?

Default Problem Solved

While it still does not automatically add to the tool bar I discovered I can add a tab (I called it my Controls) and then add items to that tab. All I had to do was browse my c: drive till I found the .DLL file that got created when I did the build and click on that.

I probably would not have had this problem if I read the book starting at chapter 1, but I wanted to know this can be done so I jumped right into chapter 14.

and so it goes...
