Step 4: Creating a LINQ Enabled Web-Site that References our LINQ enabled Class Library

We will now want to go ahead and build a LINQ-enabled ASP.NET web-site that uses our LINQ class library.  Choose File->Add->Web Site within Visual Studio to add a new project to the solution.  Choose the LINQ web-site template to create an ASP.NET web-site that is enabled with the LINQ compilers.

Your VS solution will then look like this:

The last two steps you will want to take are to:

1) Add a project reference from the web-site project to the LINQ class library.  To-do this, right-click on the web-site and select "Add Reference," select the "Projects" tab and add the reference as normal.

2) Add a connection-string to your web.config file in the web-site project for the LINQ class library.  This will enable you to easily configure and change the connection-string that is used at runtime for the application.  Simply copy/paste the connection-string value in the LINQ class library's app.config file to the web.config file's <connectionString> section to configure this.

Once the above two steps are done, we are ready to build ASP.NET UI pages against our LINQ class library and associated data models.
