How to: Create a SharePoint Web Part by Using a Designer

A Visual Web Part combines a Web Part item with a User Control item. You can design the appearance of the Web Part by dragging controls from the Visual Studio Toolbox to the surface of the user control.

To create a Visual Web Part, add a Visual Web Part item to any SharePoint project.

NoteNote

The project must be in a solution that is configured to deploy as a farm solution.

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Project. If your IDE is set to use Visual Basic development settings, on the File menu, click New Project.

    The SharePoint Customization Wizard appears.

  4. In the What local site do you want to use for debugging page, type the URL of the SharePoint Web site that you will use to test the Web Part, and then click Finish. This site must be on the local computer.

  5. A Web Part item and a User Control item appear in Solution Explorer.
