Using Win Form controls in web forms

Hi All,

  Please tell me if i can't use the window forms controls in my webform.

What if i simply import the Namespace. Definitely this will help me to expose the class & methods, but will they work accordingly when get rendered.

I am totally confused.. please help me.

Simple answer:  You can't.  Webforms controls render as HTML; while this may be possible to achieve with Winforms controls by invoking the design-time rendering, I doubt it's going to work very well.

What control are you trying to use?

 I am using ShockwaveFlashObjects.ShockwaveFlashClass That is inherited form System.Windows.Forms class AxHostdl component.

Using the same procedure i am able to work with winForms but when i am using the same code for WebForm its not working.

Though its not an exact window control. Should i go for building a user conrol first.

can someone one give me difference between web form and mobile web form and which or where or when i'm using the forms?
thanks Marc Hi Marc, Based on my understanding, you want to know the differences between the ASP.NET web application and ASP.NET mobile web application. If I have misunderstood you, please feel free to let me know. The ASP.NET forms are used to develop the ASP.NET pages for desktop browsers and The ASP.NET mobile forms are used to develop the ASP.NET pages for mobile device browsers. When we create the ASP.NET mobile web forms pages, we can use nearly all the features of ASP.NET. But there are a couple of compatibility issues: Error Handling and Reporting. Tracing. Using Redi...

user control data entry form, use same codebehind as web form?
Hi All, I have a quesiton about the approach I'm taking. I have a series of report forms which I have been in the process of consolidating to a single, generic page and subs/functions in a single code-behind. All the reports can use the same set of data entry elements (a dropdown, a radio list, and a textbox). I'm trying to convert these elements to a user control. However, this user control seems to need to inherit differently than the rest of the code-behind. I've been using a single class in the code behind. Is it feasible to separate out the data entry? the code behind im...

How to get a changed web form control name to use in javascript?
When you use a user control, all web form controls names get changed by .NET some like ctl0_ctl5_txtFirstName where txtFirstName is the actual name I gave. in Javascript, to refer to this control I can do like document.getElementById('ctl0_ctl5_txtFirstName') but the thing is from time to time, the prefix, in this case ctl0_ctl5_, gets changed again. So the javascript does not work anymore. Is there any way of handling this situation? Is there any server method to get the prefix? If then I can send the prefix to client side and prefix it with actuall control name like var ...
