I am trying to create two web parts (that are not in the same project) that can connect.
So far I have created
The interface that will be used for communication. It is in it's own Class Library project.
The Provider web part which references the interface class
The consumer web part which references the interface class also.
I followed the instructions from this tutorial, and modified them slightly to accommodate that the web parts were in different projects.
My problem is that when I add both web parts to the page, neither have the "Connections" option in their menu (the one that has "Edit webpart" in it).
What do I need to add to the Web Part in order to make this option appear? I'm not sure if it is related but I already have "Allow Connections" checked in the web part settings.
