Default Server side on code on control property

  I developed a customcontrol and I have a property call str_extra_parameters. I am trying to assign the value on the control definition itself. It is not working. It works when I assign it on code-behing on onInit event. How do I mingle server side and .aspx code together

The following doesn't work for me
                    str_extra_parameter = <%# System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name %>

I tried putting string apostrophe before and after, no luck.

But the following works when I assign it on code-behind

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
        AutoSuggest_User.str_extra_parameters_for_stored_p rocedure = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name ;

Please help me to avoid code behind and put the code on aspx side itself

Thanks in advance

Using data binding syntax can be tricky. Normally you use that syntax in a control that will be explicitly bound by calling the .DataBind() method. However, you are trying to use this at the page level. Unless you bind the page, that databinding code will never be processed. What's wrong with letting the code behind do it?

One bit of advice for something like this... create a public method on the control to act as a "setter" for this value you need to pass it. Have that method fire off the code that needs the value. (I'm assuming that you are running the code that needs that value in the control's page_load event, which is why you have to put the value assignment in the OnInit handler of the page.) This provides more flexibility to the control and reduces (if not eliminates) the load order dependency on the control's behavior.
