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...Usercontrol vs Custom Server Controls, Any need for Custom Server Controls
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

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?

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 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..

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.

I have some dynamically generated LinkButtons inside my custom server control. I never know how many there are going to end up being. I need to bind a 'Command' event to these. I understand that this nieeds to be done in the controls 'OnInit' event. I need to also add items to my server control dynamically in a pages codebehind, which will, in turn, dynamically create more linkbuttons. I'm having trouble keeping both these functionalities in one, as the OnInit event of the server control occurs before the page_Init event of my ASP.Net page.Here's the code of my ...Bindable Childrens Controls Form Custom Server Control
