Use External DLL's in Applications

This example shows how to use third-party (or external) DLL's in applications and compile them using CSC.exe, the default .NET compiler used by Iron Speed Designer. (The other compiler that Iron Speed Designer can use is Visual Studio .NET).


Step 1:  Place your DLL files in the Bin folder of your application.

Step 2:  Modify CompileApplication.rsp to use third-party DLL's. When Iron Speed Designer uses csc.exe to compile the application, it uses

External DLL

to get its compilation settings. Add the DLL's to the comma-separated list of DLL's in the /reference section in the CompileApplication.rsp, e.g.:

External DLL

In this example, the third-party DLL's are: DTS, DTSCustTasks and DTSPump.

Step 3:  Fully qualify the namespace for the classes from the third-party Dll's in your applications classes.

  • Import the namespaces in individual classes (i.e. CS .NET classes in your applications) that make use of the namespaces.

Step 4:  Build and Run the application.

Customizations included in this wizard are provided as a sample to demonstrate a feature, and may work only in specific situations. The Iron Speed Designer support team cannot assist in the resolution of problems which may occur as a result of customizing your application or modifying a customization to fit a particular purpose.
