Custom Server Control Vs Web Parts, Any need for Custom Server Control
I've just posted a similar question on why you need server controls when you can pre-compile usercontrols and redistribute them.
I've seen lots of (usercontrol vs web part) but not much on web part vs custom server control.
According to the MSDN site you can put web parts onto a normal asp.net page outside of a web part zone and they behave just like custom server controls. So, if you are creating a bunch of controls for redistribution to customer asp.net sites and/or SharePoint sites why don't you just create Web Par...derived custom controls && composite controls
A derived custom control (that inherit asp server controls) needs to implement the Render(HtmlTextWriter writer) method and other interfaces; A composite control needs to implement the CreateChildControl() method and INamingContainer... this is what I came across from all tutorials I can find.
Are there cases where if I am building a derived custom control, and it contains multiple existing server controls such as LinkButton, and instead of rendering them in Render I would be better off to implement the CreateChildControl() method?
Basically, are Render() and CreateChildControl(...Server Web User Control or Web Custom Control
Ok, I made a DataGrid I like, stuck it in a Web Control Lib, and then to my toolbar.
Now I want to take my nice little control and add it to a greater control, maybe place some buttons around it etc.
I could always inherit from it in a new custom control and dynamically add the buttons, but I thought about using a Web User Control.
I thought I could easily create a Web User Control, drop on my grid and the buttons on a form, and expose some properties and events, but once I got into it, I got a feeling that this isn't what a Web User Control is for.

I have a custom control in which there is an html text box.when you click on it , a div containing a table is appeared and according to what you select in that table a text is set to the text box.
It works fine but the problem is: as the text box is an html element it doesn't have viewstate and when a post back occures in the page its value disappeares.I tried a hidden field to keep its value.again there is another problem : I put this custom control in a usercontrol and put the usercontrol in a multiview and by clicking on a button this view is selected and by clicking another bu...Web Custom Control within a Web Custom Control
I was wondering if this can be done and how. I've created a simple custom control that displays a header which is my first custom control. So I'm just a baby when it comes to this..
Within the header I currently have a property for breadcrumbs which is a string.
What I would like to do is have the breadcrumb property be a Link Button List. I did find a custom control of a Link Button List which is exactly what I wanted. My question is how can/do I include this into my custom control?
Can it done? How? Please help? I'm at a lose here.

I am developing a custom controls that will render headers for different web sites. Within these controls, I want to place another custom control that will change the language. I created the language control and had it implement IPostBackDataHandler. This control works fine if I drag it on a new web form, but if I tell a header custom control to render it problems occur. The Language Selector custom control does not have a Page member anymore and the event handlers do not work. Does anyone have any experience with doing something similiar? Anyone have any suggestions?
...Add .Net Control to Web Custom Control
I want to add .NET Control (like: TextBox, Button...) to Web Custom Control.How i can do it? Alphavn
That's called a composite control -- "Mark As Answer" if my reply helped you --
What gunteman said, that is one approach and in most cases the right one.But its also possible to add child controls to a Control thats inherit from WebControl itself.
Be sure to implement INamingContainer to that inherited Control too, thats the important point of that approach.--Microsoft MVP - Visual Developer ASP / ASP.NET- http://www.aspnetzone.de/blogs/peterbuch...Custom Web Control inside another Custom Web Control
I created a custom web control (CusWebNew) that displays some textboxes by adding them to the ControlCollection of the webcontrol. I also created a custom webcontrol (CustWebButton) that inherts from Button control, and overrided the OnClick function.
When I use CustWebButton on a regular web form, it seems to function correctly.
However, when I added to be part of the ControlCollection of CustWebNew, it stops to work.
Any ideas why?

I'm building a web server control that needs to include functionality from 3rd party web server control, ASPNetMenu. My web server control needs to render ASPNetMenu at runtime to create a menu. I'd like to do this so that my control's parent ASPX page does not need to register ASPNetMenu or make any configuration changes as this should be done through my web server control.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to do this?

I have custom control, which inherits from a Datagrid. This controls is used to maintain the tables in the backend DB. Is it possible to added few more webcontrols like table, textboxes and Buttons, (NOT Inside the datagrid but) along with the datagrid in my Custom Control?
Is Composite control (as I know - my existing custom control class should inherit from control and implement INamingContainer, and the data Grid be a part/child control of it ) is the only way of doing this ?
Or Is it possible to add web controls to Custom control inherited from existing Controls? If so can you ple...Cannot drag 'n drop controls on my composite control
I made a custom control (that inherits from CompositeControl) that has 3 sections (controls): a label, a Panel, and a set of buttons (Ok-Cancel). The controls renders fine when I use it in a aspx. I need this control to be reusable by other developers so anyone can drag and drop new controls (for example buttons, labels, etc.) into the panel section of my control. Though, when I'm in the Design mode of my aspx, I cannot drag 'n drop new controls to my control.

I'm new to ASP.Net so this is probably a stupid question but, is there any need to create customer server controls now that you can pre-compile usercontrols into a dll and thus easily share between applications?
This blog post from David Ebb describes how to do it and the restrictions he note don't seem that bad (other than being able to embed resources such as images in the dll). http://blogs.msdn.com/davidebb/archive/2005/10/30/487160.aspx
