Dynamic Usercontrol Issue
I am migrating a site to 2.0 from 1.1. In the old pages I have a usercontrol that I load dynamically but I am getting an error:

"Type 'recnav' is not defined"

in my Declaration:

Protected RecNav As recnav

Where recnav is my usercontrol saved as recnav.ascx.

This worked before...is there something I have to do differently in 2.0?

Hi Bean,

You need to add a reference to the markup of your page, so the code behind knows what control you're talking about. You can either set the Control property to the user control or the VirtualPath property. Here's a quick example:

<%@ Reference Control="~/Controls/AdminMenu.ascx" %>

Then in your code behind, you can new up an instance of AdminMenu (in this example)

Hope this helps,

Thanks yes that worked, I also declared the usercontrol like so:

Protected RecNav As ASP.MyControlName
