Based on your description, I understand that you need to embed a windows form into a windows control library and use the form in a web application. If there is any misunderstanding, please feel free to let me know.

We can put a windows form into a windows control library. It is possible. Here are the steps

1. Right click on the windows control library project and select Add New Item.
2. Add a Windows form and click Add.

However, with the current technology, we cannot put a windows form in a web project, because they are created with completely different technologies.

If you need to run your windows form application from a web application, you can consider the click-once deployment.

ClickOnce deployment allows you to publish Windows-based applications to a Web server or network file share for simplified installation. Visual Studio provides full support for publishing and updating applications deployed with ClickOnce.

 hi i m agred with ur ans.but i hv already added windows form into windows control library.

and i m opening that form into a panel.when i m embedding windows control into web application it's working and windows form is opened into a web page. Actually we r doing h/w interfacing in web application for that i m using windows control library to make control that ll capture images from camera and then we embed it into web application that runs into client m/c.

i hv implemented IMessageFilter interface onto the windows form which is into windows control library and that messsage filter taking picture from camera and showing into the form.it's working in control.but when i m embedding that control into web application it's not working because IMessage filter is nt there in web application.

i want to knw why iMessage filter is nt working in case of web application.if you have any idea then let me know.

When you drag and drop a windows form control into the ASP.NET web page, the windows form control is actually hosted in an ActiveX control called IEHost. This is different from you directly use it in a windows form application.

You will have limited access to files and other resources, including the windows message queue. That's why IMessageFilter is not working properly.

For this, I still suggest you use ClickOnce deployment and have your client trust the assembly. So that you can have more permission at the client.

Embedded Windows Forms controls
I need to do some custom stuff in my web application so I'm trying to decide whether or not to write a Windows Forms Control and host it in an ASP.NET web page - the old hosted ActiveX control scenario.  If you tell me not to do this the alternative is writing an ActiveX control to do this! My  question is...Is it possible to print a document from such a control.  The  document will come from a website.  The control needs to assemble it and print it.  Is this operation restricted in any way for this type of implementation?  I know that file i/o is rest...
