    Hi everyone, What I am after is some information on how to create some kind of graphical interface in Visual Studio for a class, so that when I double click on it in Solution Explorer instead of showing the code document it shows something like a GridView (similar to the Project Settings page), then it would convert whatever is entered in the table to some code (basically builds the class). I have searched a bit but not sure about what to do, classes that inherit Component get a different design surface, so is it a custom designer, but some classes use Custom Tools, some others talk about creating an editor associated with a particular file extension then I got some matches for DSL (which I know nothing about). Can anyone point me in the right direction? Regards, Mark.
