Custom Server Controls :: Pointers On Writing Server Control?
Nov 15, 2010
I'm a little stuck here, with my first server control. I'll just post the whole thing, as I'm sure I've done plenty of mistakes. The main thing for me to find out is if there's a more elegang way to write this.
What I'm trying to accomplish here is to write a panel with custom HTML inside it. Inside the custom HTML, I need to put some server controls I can actually reach. My attempt at finding the span in the code failed, so there's obviously something wrong.
Obviously, I've only just begun, but I'd really value some feedback before I dig myself in too deep ;)
Within an existing ASP.NET page I've created the following layout, which is a tabbed header and content area. When the tabs are clicked (using JQuery) I show the relevant content, and hide all the other content for that respective tab, like so...
I'd like to expand this functionality to make it into a User Control, so that I could re-use the code more easily. Once the control is created, I'd like to be able to use it like this:[Code]....
where I can start learning how to do this, or offer direct help on the code? I've read many tutorials for creating controls using existing controls (e.g. custom labels etc) but they are all too simple. With the above, do I need to create a ContentArea control first, then work onto the TabbedControl? How do I get ASP.NET to render out the contents of my ContentArea (including ASP.NET controls that are contained within it)?
I have a custom server control inheriting from CompositeControl. It consists of two RadioButtonlist controls that are rendered side by side in an html table. The number of ListItems in each RadioButtonList is not known until runtime. Depending on how many items each list contains, the RepeatColumns property of each list is set differently. To do this in the handler for the ItemDataBound event I need to get the count of ListItems in each RadioButtonList. How do I expose the Items.Count property of each internal RadioButtonList as a top-level property? I tried using a getter to return the count but this generates a compile-time error to the effect that the count cannot be assigned to--even though I have not created a setter.
Similarly, in the handler for the Submit event, I need to get the ClientID of each internal RadioButtonList to pass to a method that checks for data changes. How do I expose the ClientID of each component RadioButtonList as a top-level property?
I can of course index the Controls collection of the composite control to access the child control and read its properties--but that defeats the whole point of making a complex, independent custom server control.
I've created 2 web user controls. A = User control that displays an image, and B is the user control that hosts A. I'm trying to stream an array of bytes to A, but it seems like the Response.BinaryWrite method completely overwrites any heirachial controls (I can't see any of B's other controls besides the image).
How do I get A to just display the image from the byte stream? It doesn't come from a database, it's an image I created on the fly.
i am new to technology so go easy on this post according to what i read from web there are 3 type of custom server controls 1 superclass2 composite 3 renderedi found video tutorial for superclass custom server control but couldnt find video tutials for other 2.lease forward me link for composite and rendered custom server controls video tutorial
I need to create a reusable custom control,which is like a form containing a listbox and some fields.The fields can be either textbox or combobox as needed for different applications,which can be selected on the property of the form onwhich page that i am using it,also i needed to specify the number of fields in that property.And also need place 3 buttons below for edit and delete the selected item in the listbox and a button to save.Data will be binded from the database as needed for different applications.
tell me with code how to create it using asp.net server control in C#.
I am creating custom server control. I have two classes in project. One is main class that render control and another will be used to render content based on condition.I just want to know how to render content from other classes in main class.For example. This isjust an example.My main class code
My TopLeftPane class
My page code on page load event
When I run the page, Header title always getting null. This is a just sample code. I will have more than 20 classes so I dont want to write a code in main class to render whole control.I hope all of you understand my problem.
I have to use inline code for an aspx page and I need to use a custom server control that is defined in the same aspx page but the control does not get processed as a server control. it gets returned as is as static html tag.
Some information on what my control looks like
is it posible to add client side functionality to a custom server control in vb.net?i am looking at msdn library and there is no code for vb :/ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa719700%28v=VS.71%29.aspxI fount this on MSDN Library Adding Client Capabilities to a Web Server ControlWhat i'm trying to do is to add some client functionality to my control, so that you can get or set some properties/values on client side. From the above link i see that this is doable with Ajax Server Control, but i don't have it, i have Custom Server Control. Can i do this with Custom Server Control and how?
I'm having a dumb problem that is killing me. I have created the simpelest custom server control in VS 2008 c# called MyMsgBox. On the ASP page I put it in and register it. But, in the .cs file, when I try to call one of its functions I get the compile error that it is not found. The funny thing is that intellesense has it in the list and all of the functions with their given arguements. At the top of the .cs file I am using the namespace. The code for the custom server control is in the App_Code folder. Also when I remove all refrences to its functions, the code compiles and when debugging the constructor for the class MyMsgBox gets hit.
this.msgBox1.confirm("Would You Like to add a new Task for this PO/Contract? ", "hid_f"); Error Message: 'Tasks' does not contain a definition for 'msgBox1' and no extension method 'msgBox1' accepting a first argument of type 'Tasks' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
I've done a fair bit of winforms programming but I'm still relatively new to ASP.NET. I have developed a few custom server controls however I am not quite sure what to do when they require certain client side java includes etc. For example, I've developed a server control which uses some jQuery UI stuff. At the moment I manually need to ensure that the jQuery stuff is referenced in the header section of the page I use control in, but is there a way to check if it is present and add it if not from the server control?
