handling events for controls in custom server control


     I am having a problem in using server controls in ASP.Net, with C#.  I am trying to create a server control which contains 2 other server controls that I created (Called MyImageButton).  MyImageButton extends the standard ImageButton with some other properties & methods that I needed.  It therefore also has the 'OnClick' event.  From the original server control, I would like to handle the Click event for these 2 image buttons in the same server control.  Basically, this server control will show 2 images, ascending and descending and it will sort according to which is clicked by client.  I hope I'm explaining myself well enough.  This is a piece of the control.  The server control that contains the 2 other MyImageButtons is called MySortImage.


protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
            CS.Controls.MyImageButton btnAscending = new MyImageButton();
            CS.Controls.MyImageButton btnDescending = new MyImageButton();

            btnAscending.Click += new ImageClickEventHandler(btnAscending_Click);
            btnDescending.Click += new ImageClickEventHandler(btnDescending_Click);
            Literal lit = new Literal();
            lit.Text = " ";

        protected void btnAscending_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)

public void Sort(CS.General.Enums.SORT_TYPE sortType)

            System.Web.SessionState.HttpSessionState Session = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Session;
            Session["sortby"] = SortFieldName; //property string defined in this control
            Session["sorttype"] = sortType; //property enum defined in this control

        protected void btnDescending_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)

However, when the clicks are made, no calls to 'btnDescending_Click' or 'btnAscending_Click' are being made.  Can you please tell me what is the problem with this code?

 Try adding the event handlers OnInit... Render happens after all events have been processed, except like Disposed and Unloaded.

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).

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...

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

Custom Server Control Vs Web Parts, Any need for Custom Server Control
Hello I've just posted a similar question on why you need server controls when you can pre-compile usercontrols and redistribute them. http://forums.asp.net/p/1397433/3010100.aspx#3010100 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...

Register Events on Control inside Custom Server Control
 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.

Custom Server Control With Child Control
All, I am currently putting together a very simple control. The new control outputs a table with two rows. The top row contains a heading and the bottom row will contain any other content. The control as it stands works perfectly well and I can place text into the content row no problem. Now, to the problem. Once I'd completed the control I figured it would be neat to enable the developer to add controls directly into the bottom row (content row) of the outputted table. As you probably know the WebControl class has a Controls collection which the developer can use to add any other...
