Class Libraries

P: n/a
I am used to putting my business logic layer etc in the App_code folder in a
website project. I want to use class libraries so I can use Sandcastle and
NUnit. However unlike a website project I do not get immediate Intellisense.
I have to

Add the project to the website solution (File>Add>Existing Project)
Add a reference to the class library
Build the solution
Use the class library in website

If I want to change the class library
Change the class code
Build the solution
Use in website

Is this the correct way of using a class library as it is more complicated
than the Website project and I want to know if I am missing anything.

just be sure its a project reference, not a ref to the dll. then if you
change any code in the proj and hit run, it will get recompiled.

i use websites, project files and nunit/msunit with no problems.

No I did a link to the dll. I have now changed it to the project. Does this
still mean when I make changes to the class library I have to recompile
before I can use intellisense etc in the website project.
