[.net] Creating a custom WebBrowser control

Recommended Posts

This is supposed to be something simple in VS2005 but it always seems to get me. I'm trying to create a custom WebBrowser control by inheriting WebBrowser and extending it. I simply selected Add->New Item->User Control. I then added
class MyWebBrowser : WebBrowser
So far so good. Now for the part that gets me every time. How can I use my new custom control on my form? You think it would be a simple matter of dragging the control to the toolbox but it doesn't work. There is text in the toolbox that says "There are no usable controls in this group. Drag an item onto this text to add it to the toolbox". Tried dragging to that. Nothing. Okay so maybe it's not showing the control, right click on the toolbox and select "Show All". Still can't find my custom WebBrowser control. It's driving me crazy!
