We recently published a How-To on support.microsoft.com for
how to share user controls across projects. In talking with customers, one of
the things they would like to do is have a common set of reusable web UI, say a navigation

for something so simple. To help make this easier, this article gives
step-by-step instructions for creating a virtual directory for common user controls
that can be reused in multiple Visual Studio projects.
