Default Binding properties to controls


My control has a public property called 'DisableBackground'.
private bool _disableBackground;
private string _targetControl;

public bool DisableBackground
  get { return _disableBackground; }
  set { _disableBackground = value; }
public string TargetControl
  get { return _targetControl; }
  set { _targetControl = value; }
I set the value on the property when I use the control from an aspx page.
 <Controls:ModalWindow runat="server" TargetControl="btnTrigger" DisableBackground="true" />
I want to bind that property to the control
        <ajaxToolkit:ModalPopupExtender ID="windowExtender" 
         TargetControlID="<%# this.TargetControl %>" 
         PopupControlID="panelWindow" />
I know that in the code behind I can find the control and then assign a value to the property.
if (_disableBackground)
  AjaxControlToolkit.ModalPopupExtender popup = (AjaxControlToolkit.ModalPopupExtender)this.FindControl("windowExtender");
  popup.BackgroundCssClass = "modalBackground";
popup.TargetControlID = _targetControl;
I was wondering if there is a simple way I can just bind the property to the control. All the examples I can find bind repeating data to the control but I just want to bind a single property or a few properties.

Thanks in advance,
