aspx thread: custom controls like ssi?


Message #1 by "Chadrick" <chadm@d...> on Thu, 11 Jul 2002 15:13:21 -0400
Question for you all out there:

Can you dynamically place custom controls on a page. I know you can't do
it with SSI (server side include) and was wondering if Microsoft fixed
that problem with these new custom controls?

Chadwick,

	Do you mean Page.LoadControl(string)?  If so, then yes.  If you mean
add a control at runtime, like

Container.Controls.Add(new ImageButton());

then yes, but good luck trying to link them up with events.  I haven't found
a reliable way to do it yet.

should have explained better.

I have my .ascx pages and register them as custom tags to use for
different content. I use to use SSI to import files in but now if they
are .ascx files can I dynamically call one of them when I run the page.
I realize I might have to register them all (which isn't a good
prospect) in order to pick one to display.

Hope this clears it up.?

	Not sure if you have to <% @Register %> them, but you can use
Page.LoadControl("path\yourControl.ascx") to load controls dynamically.
