Default Custom Controls

Hello,

I seem to be forever having problems with Custom Controls. Here is some of my scenarios:

1. Everytime I opened a project with a custom control that used a type converter, it said "Error Creating Control", and I deleted/added it and it worked fine.
2. Sometimes making some minor changes (I researched and it appeared fine) to a control then recompiled the project, I got "Error Creating Control." I deleted it and added it again, dropped the reference and added it, etc. and it still said that.

Has anyone else had the amount of problems with custom controls? I consider just dropping them and copying/pasting code because it feels like more of a hassle trying to get them to work than to manually create the code.

Anybody have comments/thoughts about this?

Thanks,

Brian Mains

Hi Brian,

Yeah, they can be a pain, but it can also be really cool when they work.
I created a number of custom controls, and it always was pretty difficult to get them to work; especially design-time support. But once they did, they really worked great.
One book I found very useful is "Developing Microsoft ASP.NET Server Controls and Components" by Kothari and Datye (Microsoft Press).
