When to Add Reference the tabs on Add Reference?

P: n/a
Hello

I have created class libraries and Windows Application in VS 2005 and used
Add Reference to access the class library I created. There are other tabs on
the Add Reference dialog box such as:

1).Net
2)COM
3)Browse
4)Recent

In what situation would I need to Add Reference and select from those other
tabs?

The .Net tab would be to add a standard .net library that is not loaded by
default such as System.Windows.Forms for a class library to show a message
box.

The COM tab would be to reach out to a COM library registered on your system.

The Browse tab would be to get access to a .net library built as part of
another solution or as a third party distributable .net package.

The recent tab, quite frankly, I had not even noted. I go mainly to .Net or
Browse.

Winlin,

If you don't have the library project in your solution, then don't forget to
refresh the reference when you have build new dll's.
