Trying to load a control into a control from another control

Exactly as the subject states, I'm trying to load a control into another control from a control loaded into a page, I keep getting this error from the code I have below.  I've also tried the findcontrol but it keeps coming up null.

(67): 'System.Web.UI.UserControl' denotes a 'class' where a 'variable' was expected

UserControl ut = ((webcontrols.BrowseItems)UserControl).LoadControl("BrowseItems");

This is how we Load User controls into a content place holder.

UserControl ctl;
ctl = (UserControl)LoadControl(PagePath.ReturnPagePath(Request.QueryString["CurrentPage"]));
catch (Exception ex)
Response.Write("Unable to load " + (string)Session["CurrentPage"] + " control");

You need to replace the whole ctl call with the UserControl object the you created. When you Response.Write your execption on a load fail. change the output to whatever you would like to display.
By looking at your naming scheme it looks like you just want to fill a Panel. For this we usually make a Panel on the page and goto the solution explorer then drag and drop the usercontrol we wish to display into the panel. If you are not wanting to change this dynamically later in your solution the drag and drop is the easiest way to go.

It's not a bug, it's a feature.

How do I control one control from another control?
I have a page page1.aspx which is within a master page. On page I have a table with two cells. Within each cell I have placed two controls (ascx) that I have developed. Now I'd like to be able to get these two controls to interact. One needs to update the other. One has some search criteria that the other one needs to update its gridview. One needs to make the other visible/not visible at certain times. Out of the box neither control can see each other at all. Is there a good article or someplace I can find some information on how to do this? Information Technology SolutionsHelping You Focus. Helping You Succeed. Here's a hint for you... ascx user controls are self-contained objects that hide their contents from other applications.  When you build them, you will need to place in properties and methods are are accessable from an outside. Here is a down-and-dirty example Create a usercontrol. name it HelloOutsideWorld.ascx with the following contents:<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="HelloOutsideWorld.ascx.cs" Inherits="HelloOutsideWorld" %> <asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server" Text="Awaiting Message From The Outside..."></asp:Label>  Here is the codebehind for HelloOutsideWorld.ascx.cs:using System; using System.Data; using System.Configuration; using System.Collections; using System.Web; using System.Web.Security; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; using S...

Controlling web control instances on Web Form
I have created a composite control, extending functionality of the Hidden Control. However, I would like to prevent the user from adding this control to the page multiple times. I only want one instance of the control on the Web Form. What setting in my project to I adjust to enable this functionality? I can not find it in any of the books that I have referenced. Is this a setting or is this code that has to be added to the inheriting class. Looks like there is no standard apporach. But I'd consider using static field to count number of created objects and throw exception if second object ...

How to access individual controls from a form containing the web user control containing those controls

Web control in web control
Hi,There are two simple web user controls A and B, where B contains A. They just display the bunch of text boxes, so I do not need them even in tool pane. They sit in the same project next to web form.I noticed that web user control put on ASPX page does not appear in code behind, but if I create it with protected keyword and name being exactly the same as id it works fine. I can access such a web control from code behind and see the value assigned in IE. The problem is that the same routine does work for my A web control in B. When I assign the value IE, I keep getting null reference. ...

Controls.Add in Composite Control that inherits another control
Hi! I created a composite control that inherits from the WebControls.Button. I added the following in the Load event:         Dim mHidden As New WebControls.HiddenField        Me.Controls.Add(mHidden) but the control is not created. Why?Dimitris PapadimitriouSoftware Development Professional Hi,Child controls on Button do not make much sense (how would you expect them to be rendered, doesn't button allow only text into value attribute?). Button allows child controls to be added, but they won't be rendered because Button's Render(), inherited from WebControl, calls RenderBeginTag(), RenderContents() and RenderEndTag(). RenderContents() is overridden so that it does nothing.Button renders as <input type=button> and it is not required to have even closing tag (with ASP.NET 2.0 and XHTML case if of course different)Thanks,Teemu KeiskiFinland, EU I AM using ASP.NET 2. Forgot to mention. So... how can I make my control to add an extra control apart from the one being inherited? Dimitris PapadimitriouSoftware Development Professional Makes no difference to the functionality. It's the same with v2, just that there's adapters yet involved however the calls go the same route. Can you describe why do you need to inherit a Button while adding also child controls? Couldn't you inherit from a WebControl (create a pure composite one), where you'd use Button as one child control?Than...
