I am quite new to Sharepoint and ASP .NET technologies so I appologize if my question is too simple.

This tutorial is great but I can't imagine creating all controls by writing the code manually.

Is this possible to create eg. new ASP .NET web appliaction in Visual Studio 2008... create a Web Part using Web Parts Toolbox and other controls in "visual" mode and then populate it somehow to the sharepoint site? Just like dll's ?

Thanks in advance for the response.

Best regards.
