dll Protection / obfuscation

P: n/a
I have written an ASCX control with 99% of the logic in a spearate class in
it's own dll assembly. I want to ship the ascx control and the dll to other
users but I need to protect my code in the dll as I don't want anyone to see
the code.

I built a deployment project, built a reference to the dll and all of my
code is exposed. Along with the dll came a .pdb and a .xml.

My first question is: is there any way to hide my code short of obfuscation
so users can't see the source.

I then registered the commuity edition of dotfuscator and ran it against my
dll but the obfuscated version does not work as the methods can't be seen.
The obfuscation project did come up with some messages. The professional
version costs too much money.

What's my best route?

Thanks,
T
