How to add the Sharepoint Services Namespace Reference to a .NET application

I wrote my first SPS2003 .NET app today.  This WebDAV Dog is learning new Sharepoint tricks, but step one is figuring out how in the heck to reference the Sharepoint Libraries in a VS.NET application.

First of all, this ain't mine.  I found this newsgroup post of Jim McCusker titled Creating a Web Part - Step-by-step.  Jim, whatever cool Sharepoint coding you're doing tonight, thanks, buddy!  Here is Jim's post.  Below is an excerpt on referencing the Sharepoint Services Libraries in VS.NET.

...2) Right click on the References folder in the Solution Explorer window and select Add Reference

...5) Browse to the file called Microsoft.SharePoint.dll which is typically located under the \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\ISAPI\ folder.  [ex.
\\cdpofb2\c$\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.dll]

The rest is in the Sharepoint SDK...

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet can be much more useful than ever before.

You should plan on blogging once a month, but preferably once a week.

Place your navigational links (and Java - Script)

at the right or at the bottom, but not on the left,

of the page. Not only that, but when visitors search for your keyword, it will

show up in bold in the search results, drawing more

attention to your listing.

Linkwheel creation is one of the most effective ways to get traffic to the website.

You can not consider cost consideration if you need the quality in promotion tasks.

Even an act as seemingly insignificant as putting up a jar of honey with some rosemary in it for later medicinal

or culinary use is an important link to the Earthy part of us.
