The method LoadControl works, if your loaded custom module doesn't need do raise PostbackEvents :-(
If you need that... Than this way is impossible for you.

GreetingsI am creating a support system module which will require the ability to add sub modules. For example, there is an admininstrators section in which suport requests are administered, anwsered, solved etc.There is to be another function in the admin section of the support module in which admins can upload a new support form template module, ie, say an admin wants to set up a form for users to lodge a request for new hardware, the form will display all required fields, graphics, validation etc for that request. Another support form template might be to have a new user set up on the acti...modules, modules

I'm a complete novice, just installed the Portal Starter Kit last week, and am tring to create a staff directory using the delivered contacts module.
Records are displayed in database order so, if a new record is created it will display at the end of the list, not in alphabetical order. Is there a way to sort the list before it is displayed?
Also, does anyone know how to changed the field labels (e.g. from 'contact 2' to 'photo')

I'm new to ASP.Net, so apologies if this is a basic question.
I have created my own portal using the Portal Stater Kit and added modules to it.
We are looking at a product Sigma-Pro by http://www.onyaktech.com/ which seems to be written for DotNetNuke, as it has a .dnn file, and i have successfully added it to my sample DotNetNuke.
We would like to add it to our portal based on the Starter Kit, but are not sure how this can be done. I think the .dnn file is basically am MSI which creates the database and installs the relevant modules, so do i just have to do this all manuall...How do I determine which page in my module loads when the module is first loaded?
How do I determine which page in my module loads when the module is first loaded? Normally, I have done this by changing my *.dnn file to ommit the <key></key> tag on the ascx file I want to load first in the module; however, I need to be able to refer directly to that page as to forward the user to it. Any ideas?
The initial view of the module is always the view action. You do not need a key assigned to it. You can only have one view type per module.Chris Paterra

How can I load a module inside other module?
Could it be something like having a placeholder and then injecting the module to it?

Either separate you needed code and load its model after application start.(change order)OrSet an application varaible value and chekc on this value when your module loaded. Hosam Kamel Remember to click on Mark as answer on the post that helped you
