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...problems listenening to events on a custom server control from another custom server control
Hi all,I am having problems listening to events on one of custom server controls(AddBookmark) from another custom server control(BookmarkList). The listener or the BookmarkList control has a property that can be set to the AddBookmark control (string at design but the reference is obtained at run-time). I am able to get a reference to the AddBookmark control and add a listener to it on the BookmarkList control on the OnPrender of BookmarkList. But the problem is that when the events on AddBookmark gets fired, the listener added from the BookmarkList is no longer present and the listene...Server Web User Control or Web Custom Control
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'm giving myself a crash course in custom server controls, and I have a quick general question.
Can I have a custom server control that is composed of other server controls I created.
I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but I want to be positive.

I have created a custom server control that inherits from System.Web.UI.Control.
I would like my end users to be able to drag and move the server control in the VS.Net IDE. I presume I have to expose the left/top style properties but can't find anything in the documentation or via google.
Any pointers, links or code would be great :)
Inherit from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl or just use the default Create Web Control project in the .Net IDE
Can't believe I spent 1 hour looking for this :)

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 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.
It works fine but the problem is: as the text box is an html element it doesn't have viewstate and when a post back occures in the page its value disappeares.I tried a hidden field to keep its value.again there is another problem : I put this custom control in a usercontrol and put the usercontrol in a multiview and by clicking on a button this view is selected and by clicking another bu...Bindable Childrens Controls Form Custom Server Control

HTML controls
Hi1. What is the difference between Web Form Server controls and HTML controls with runat="server" attribute.e.g. <input type="text" id="mytext" runat="server"> Vs. <asp:TextBox id="mytext" />2.

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?

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 is the difference between html server controls and web server controls?
what is the main goal of converting html elements to html server controls , so why i can directly use the web server controls instead of converting process?
thank you for the help and for the time
If you convert a normal html control to a html server control then you can work with and reference it programmatically.
MS advises using web controls where possible. But if your application uses vast amounts of html controls its far easier to just apply runat="server" than to re invent them a...VS deleting inner content of custom web server controls
I'm trying to use several different custom web server controls in a web form in Visual Studio.
Everything works fine until I try to change properties of any one of the custom controls via the VS property window.
When I switch back to HTML view from design view, any inner text or controls that had previously existed between the opening and closing tags of the custom control get blown away.
Is there any way to avoid this??
These are otherwise fairly simple controls. I've tried it with text, ASP web controls, and custom inner controls. I'm using VS 2003.
