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 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?
What do you mean by stops to work? Explain what you are trying to do with it and what it doesn't do.Brian"Trust in the...Use Web Custom control or Web User control?
Friends, I have a generic aspx page and its functions which is used in many .NET web application. The generic page contains a HTML Div control, server drop down list, server buttons, server textbox and it have different server and client functions to do its tasks for calling aspx pages in web applications.
My problem is I do not know whether I should make that generic page as a web user control (but this is tedious because all other application folders must store frontpage aspx and code behind files of the generic page) or as a web custom control (This seems to be good beca...Deploying Custom Controls that use Web Services
I have a custom control that I created that simply displays data from a web service. I have it so that my content provider can put it anywhere she wants and so I do not need to write redundant code everywhere. The control is a derived control from a Label. It works great in development environment but as soon as I deploy it to a site off of my machine, it throws this error:
Server Error in '/' Application.
Authentication failed because the remote party has closed the transport stream.

Is it better for me to begin coding my controls instead of just designing them? What would the benefits be? I meen, i seem to be able to get all i need from just putting stuff together on an ASCX file but i'm obviously missing a huge concept here... please explain!
creating user controls is indeed easier than creating custom server controls because you can simply drag & drop other controls on the form, easily add events to it, ...
Custom controls however are better when you want to reuse them in several other projects. I like to create custom controls for small, reusable com...Get control type for custom control?
For basic controls (text boxes, etc.) it's relatively easy to test for their type. but how do I reliably test for the type of a custom control?For example, I have a custom control called MyControl and would like to do something similar to this: If Me.FindControl(strControlToFind).GetType = MyControl.GetType Then ... Obviously this example doesn't work, as there is no GetType for MyControl defined. Can I setup a Type for my control? Or is there an easier way?
You could always try:If (TypeOf (Me.FindControl(strControlToFind)) Is MyControl) then

Hi. I created 4 drop downlist controls as web custom controls, which I would either like to use seperately, or working together like a hierarchy (dependant on each other). The problem is, I need to communicate with the calling control (the web page where I dragged these controls on). When the dropdownlists are used seperately, they should return all items on a table, but when they are used together, the child dropdownlist should only return items from the table based on the selection of the parent dropdownlist just above it. Can anyone please help? Thanks.

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 Control to Custom Control communication using event delegate mech.
I have a custom control “AddressPicker” that displays dynamic address information of a user. BY dynamic I mean based on the database call it checks how may addresses a user has and it displays it. There is a “Use this Address” button at the bottom of each address information which is generated dynamically too as a part of CreateChildControl. If a user click on this button I need to pass this information to another custom control namely “AddressConsumer” which in turn uses this information for further processing.My Controls are inherited WebCOntrol,INamingContainer

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.
I have a custom DatePicker control which works well in the past non-AJAX aspx pages, and it also works in UpdatePanel as long as the initial Visible Property is set to true.
But I need to set the initial Visibility to False, make it visible if user want to input a date (such as From XX Date To XX Date in a query ),
Here is the scenario:
