Yes, thanks I did read it.

It says that you can edit the Web Controls in an "code-behind window" while
still looking in the "designer" window.

So, I guess, can I code a Web Control in Notepad and still have VS.NET still
open my aspx page in their designer windows and edit it just as if I Dragged
and Dropped for the Web Controls Toolbox?

I want to still be able to use VS.NET RAD tools even though I originally
made my Web Controls in Notepad.

Thanks
