Building an ASP.NET 2.0 Web Part for Deployment to WSS V3.0 and MOSS 2007 - Part 1

The next version of SharePoint supports both the ASP.NET 2.0 web part framework and the standard SharePoint web part framework. Sometimes this can be confusing for the developers understanding the difference between the two frameworks and when to use what. I have explained both the frameworks and their differences in my previous article on Building Web Parts for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (ASP.NET 2.0 / WSS V3.0)

In this article, you will be looking at how to create an ASP.NET 2.0 web part using Visual Studio 2005 and C# language. You will create a simple ASP.NET 2.0 web part that will display the logged in user's name. You will learn how to upload the web part to the web part gallery and, finally, to add the ASP.NET 2.0 web part to the Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) V3.0 site page.

Great article - thanx a lot!!

One question though;
Is it possible to develop a webpart as a UserControl, and not a class library?

I'd like to be able to work in "WYSIWYG-mode" when developing my webparts, but I've searched everywhere and haven't found any articles regarding this. I'm starting to believe it's is not possible, and was hoping you could shed some light on the issue...

Hi Gayan
I am developing Webparts for MOSS 2007 using VS 2005, where I am trying to get Sharepoint site instance for getting Target Audience, do i need MOSS to be installed on development box or i can simply register sharepoint dlls at development box instead of installing MOSS 2007?
