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...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...Custom composite contorl contains custom contols: controls collection gets empty (Or control get reinitialized) on postback.
I'm developing a ASP .Net custom server control library. Where all the basic(Text,check,etc) controls are working well.

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...Custom Control within a Custom Control
I have two individual custom controls say custom cc1 and cc2. cc1 is communicating to cc2 using event delegate mechanism.I have tested the behaviour by dropping cc1 and cc2 onto a Web Page and it works fine. I want to create a third custom control say cc3 which should contain both cc1 and cc2. So that if i drag and drop cc3 onto a Web Page i can acheive exactly what i am doing above.
The problem is that i am not sure how to call/register a custom control within a custom control ? Any clue ?

But I need to set the initial Visibility to False, make it visible if user want to input a date (such as From XX Date To XX Date in a query ),
Here is the scenario:

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 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?

For basic controls (text boxes, etc.) it's relatively easy to test for their type. but how do I reliably test for the type of a custom control?For example, I have a custom control called MyControl and would like to do something similar to this: If Me.FindControl(strControlToFind).GetType = MyControl.GetType Then ... Obviously this example doesn't work, as there is no GetType for MyControl defined. Can I setup a Type for my control? Or is there an easier way?
You could always try:If (TypeOf (Me.FindControl(strControlToFind)) Is MyControl) then
