Load module into module...

Is it possible to load a module into another module?

I'm thinking in particular of the Internal Links Module available @ www.cortinc.com I use this module a lot and with a few enhancements it has served me well, however it has one flaw...each link only allows html data...because it is just a holder that loads the html from the db. It would be a great enhancement to be able to add other modules to these links i.e. announcements, news, pictures etc but they would in effect have to be loaded into another module.
Any thoughts would be appreciated on how I should approach this or whether it can actually be done.

John, check out composite or templated controls. you cna find a lot of good posts about them in the controls forum. There is also a book 

Developing Microsoft ASP.NET Server Controls
that has some pretty good information in it. The book is in C# and I don't know which you perfer, but the examples are easily converted over to VB if thats what you want.

JOhn - not sure if you have the SPs necessary for that - let me know - my IBS is so customised it is hard to tell - if not I can dig them out from a backup - the running version is on my Notebook which is dead screened at the moment

Has anyone come up with a possible solution for this? 

I have come a cross a need to have a module with other modules inside of it, not just injected controls..I need some extended module properties available.
I am trying to use the IE tab control with the multipage, but use modules on the multipage.

jlenardson, you can still use the tab strip, but you dont need the multipage anymore.

just use a <asp:placeholder> below your tab strip and then depending on the tab selected, load in the right control in the placehold's control collection.
mind you could run into post-back issues depending on the desired functionality of your control within the base control.
let me know if this helps.

That works as long as you don't need access to the module information.  The minute you inject the control you lose access to stuff like security rights for that module.  At least that is what has been happening to me.

Any thoughts on how to work around this?
8/20/2003 7:43:51 PM
well.. is this a specific control your trying to load in? or all of the existing controls, like you could go

ctype(me.Parent, PortalModuleControl).etcetc
within the child module to access the parents settings.. but that would be a pain to do if this was for all the modules.

How do I determine which page in my module loads when the module is first loaded?
How do I determine which page in my module loads when the module is first loaded? Normally, I have done this by changing my *.dnn file to ommit the <key></key> tag on the ascx file I want to load first in the module; however, I need to be able to refer directly to that page as to forward the user to it. Any ideas? The initial view of the module is always the view action.  You do not need a key assigned to it.  You can only have one view type per module.Chris Paterra Chris, can you elaborate on that a little?
