If you want to create a VB class and build it into a library, you can follow this tutorial:

1. Create the class source code file, MyLib.vb, with a text editor:

' MyLib.vb
' Copyright (c) FYIcenter.com

Public Class MyLib
    Public Shared Sub PrintHello()
        Console.WriteLine("Hello World! - From MyLib.")
    End Sub
End Class

2. Compile and build the static library with the "vbc /target:library" command:

>vbc /target:library MyLib.vb
Microsoft (R) Visual Basic Compiler version 2.2.0.61624
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

>dir MyLib.*
09:47 AM             6,144 MyLib.dll
09:42 AM               182 MyLib.vb

3. Distribute the library file, MyLib.dll, to others to use.
