Hi Dan Sorensen,
Thank you very much for the positive feedback, indeed our Documentation has become much more complete and organized with the last two major releases. Along with it I'd recommend you to take a look at the Sitefinity SDK which offers several complete code samples ranging from simple controls to advanced modules. The Tutorials section
from our online Documentation is another valuable resource that you might refer to along with the SDK.
I'd like to comment a little bit on the workflow you have outlined in the previous response - indeed this is the correct way to create a custom control for Sitefinity, however you are not obliged to stick to that format when it comes to some widgets requiring simple functionality. If you are not required to have custom designer for your control, you can still expose some properties in the default one, and end up with a simple user control consisting of a template (*.ascx), codefile (*.cs) and the automatically generated designer(*.ascx.designer.cs)
and thus skip steps 4-6 . Say for instance our NewsRotator sample
is a good example of a Sitefinity widget that does not require custom designer. If there's anything else you'd like to know, please do not hesitate to ask.
