Custom Control within a Control Control
I am developing a custom controls that will render headers for different web sites. Within these controls, I want to place another custom control that will change the language. I created the language control and had it implement IPostBackDataHandler. This control works fine if I drag it on a new web form, but if I tell a header custom control to render it problems occur. The Language Selector custom control does not have a Page member anymore and the event handlers do not work. Does anyone have any experience with doing something similiar? Anyone have any suggestions?
...Custom Server Control Made of Custom Controls?
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.

ASP.NET so rocks! Making page components extensible objects is such a great idea! I love it....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
His article desribes the techniques for ASP.Net 2.0 and he suggests that there will be further improvements in .Net 3.5 in this ar...Web Custom Control within a Web Custom Control
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.

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...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...how to have both server controls and html controls rendered in a custom control?
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...Creating Custom Controls With Custom Controls Inside Of Them
Hello, I am trying to create a custom control for creating tabs. The idea is that our designer can just use the control tags to generate the tabs. The problem that I am running into is that I want to be able to have a custom control that allows any number of child custom controls. So there would be a TabContainer Control, and within that there would be any number of tabs. The idea is similar to how an asp:DropDown list can have any number of ListItems within them. Here is my code, any help is appreciated. 1 <!-- TAB CONTAINER -->2 <%@ Control Language=&...Custom controls called from inside other custom controls???

I am trying to create a base page class which will call 3 custom controls. This base page class will span across multiple projects hence the reason I am not creating user controls.

What I'm trying to do is create a module for use within a larger page. The page itself is an order form, which will have typical payment info (address, credit card, etc.), and the ability to select what you are paying for. Our clients will have several options in how they want the page setup. They can either have a single form, or they can have each module on it's own page. They can also have all the selected items fire in a single transaction, or have a seperate transaction for each item selected. And they can limit the total number of transactions a person can...Custom User Controls v. Custom Web Controls
Is it better for me to begin coding my controls instead of just designing them? What would the benefits be? I meen, i seem to be able to get all i need from just putting stuff together on an ASCX file but i'm obviously missing a huge concept here... please explain!
creating user controls is indeed easier than creating custom server controls because you can simply drag & drop other controls on the form, easily add events to it, ...
Custom controls however are better when you want to reuse them in several other projects. I like to create custom controls for small, reusable com...How to Render controls within an UpdatePanel in a Custom Server Control
Hi,Im writting a CompositeControl that contains a few UpdatePanels (TabContainer with an UpdatePanel on each TabPanel to make Tab control panels load "on-demand"). I want to control the renderring of the controls within the UpdatePanel's ContentTemplateContainer.How should I implement the render method of my CompositeControl?Should I use a custom UpdatePanel (inherit from UpdatePanel and override the RenderContents method)?
is there a simpler solution? (because I need a different "render" for each tab panel....)Thanks

Im writting a CompositeControl and Im wandering if I its recommended to use Application in the initialization of controls (in the Controls collection) in
CreateChildControls() function (by checking if its a postback)
How can I avoid naming conflicts? (if the hosting web form defines Application variables with the same names I define in my CompositeControl).
CompositeControl implements INamingContainer which ensures that your control and its child controls will get unique ids. as far as CreateChildControl, be sure to set Child...Custom Web Control inside another Custom Web Control
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 do you mean by stops to work? Explain what you are trying to do with it and what it doesn't do.Brian"Trust in the...
