Custom Server Control - Moving within the VS.Net Designer - Help Needed


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 :)

Any element can be movable in VS.NET. What it really does is copying the text of the element code and paste it on somewhere you dropped it by mice. Anyway you found the answer.

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...

I would like to know if you guys know a good article or text, about writing the designer interface for my Custom Control... I saw something this way a long way, but I don't remember...

Thanks guys... I don't know what "dynamic resizing" is supposed to mean... but to make a non-UI control, the easiest th...

Multifile assembly server control not working in VS.NET designer
..NET supports multifile assembly, in which an assembly manifest is in one file and can contain links to other resource files. In theory, I should be able to get the linked resources in my code using Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetFile(...) or Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(...). This works normally when the control is running on the web server. It does not work when the control is running in the VS.NET visual designer. In VS.NET visual designer, the GetManifestResourceStream returns null as if it cannot find the resource. However, if I choose "View...

Architecture: .Net Controls vs. Custom Controls
I'm interested in managing users. i.e. Logins and profiles, etc.My question is, should I be using things like the Login control or should I program these from scratch? I dont like the fact that .NET creates so many things for me. This level of abstraction terrifies me and it feels like I have no control over the code .I've done a few huge sites in Classic ASP (million-hits-per-day type sites) and I'm not sure how robust certain controls are, or when to use them.Is, for example, the Login control aimed at newbies to .NET? Should it be used for the larger projects with thousands of...

server control producing dynamic images in VS.NET visual designer
I am building a server control that can display dynamic images (images that are drawn using System.Drawing and sent to the browser). I am thinking, is it possible at all to build such a control such that it can work in the Visual Studio.NET designer? It appears it is impossible to output binary data in a ASP.NET server control, but I managed to make it work by saving the image in Page.Cache, Page.Session or as a temporary file on the web server. However, the VS.NET designer does not seem to support any of the above method. There is no support for Page.Cache or session variables, or...

Copying VS.NET web project to Win 2003 and opening it in VS.NET
Hi all, Environment: ASP.NET 1.1; VS.NET Enterprise 2003; Windows Server 2003; IIS 6.0 I hope somebody can help me figure this out. I created a Web project on my XP Dev machine which I can open, run, debug and do everything else. I can "deploy" the project to my 2003 server and open the site in explorer browser. But now, I want to transfer the whole solution to my Win 2003 and continue the development and testing on it. So, I transferred the whole VS solution directory from my XP machine to the Win 2003 machine. I created a Web site (not a virtual directory under default...

Issue using control created in 2003 in 2002
I have a friend that has an issue using my C# custom control in Visual 2002 that I have compiled under Visual 2003. I never did test it with that version, but I was under the impression that it should still work as long as you don't use any features specific to the 1.1 framework (which I really don't think I did). My guess now is that this is correct, but only when using 2002 controls in 2003. I have searched the web, these forums, and MSDN for the last 30 minutes with no real answer. The guy that runs MetaBuilders ( tell...

In Vs.Net 2005, grid does not come up in designer like in 2003
Hi, I am using VS.Net 2005. Previously I used VS.Net 2003. In 2003, whenever i add a new file it used to display the page in grids that helps me moving the controls and aligning it. But in 2005, i could not come up with an option that can show the grid with dots in the designer. Am i missing any setting here?   Regards, Jagadeesh   Turn on first checkbox for Absolute Positioning on the options page Tools | Options, HTML Designer, CSS Positioning.  From that point on controls dragged to the page will be absolutely positioned.-DanThis posting is provided "AS I...
