Using a server control in the rendering a custom control


I have a custom control that overrides the Render method to draw itself.  Is it possible to use a server control (asp:Image, wwHoverPanel, etc.) inside such a custom control or would I have to rewrite my custom control as a composite control?

I'd like to do something something like:

protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter w)

   // somehow place asp:Label here

   w.RenderEndTag(); // column
   w.RenderEndTag(); // row
   w.RenderEndTag(); // table

The control in question is pretty complicated and rewriting it as a composite control would take a fair amount of work.

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). 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. 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 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 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).

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...
