Add control to asp:PlaceHolder on asp.net page from user control on same page

Dan
I have an asp.net page default.aspx with a user control and a placeholder
control.

<html>
<body>
<form id="myform" method="post" runat="server" />
<PageHeader:Hea der id="header1" runat="server" />
<asp:PlaceHolde r ID="content" runat="server" />
</form>
</body>
</html>

In my user control I have 5 linkbuttons. I would like to have each of these
linkbuttons load a different user control into the placeholder on the
default.aspx page. Is this possible? If so how can I add my user controls
to the placeholder from another user control?

Thanks,

Dan

You've got different options. Just make sure you can modify the controls
collection of the placeholder control on the page. You can do this in
different ways. You can create a public property or method on the page
class, and by the Page property on your usercontrol, you can invoke the page
method or work with the property. You could also let your page class pass
the reference of the placeholder, or the placeholders control collection, to
a property on your usercontrol.

if you would use a method on the page class then you could do something like
this

default.aspx.cs

public void SetPlaceHolderC ontrol (Control control) {
content.Control s.Clear();
content.Control s.Add(control);
}

in your header usercontrol put something like this in the eventhandler of
the linkbuttons

((default)Page) .SetPlaceHolder Control(Page.Lo adControl("Othe rUserControl.as c
x"));

where default is the name of your page class

I'm building an ASP page that has a lot of text and graphics. There is a calculation facility on the page. The user enters several numbers in a form and presses a button to see the calculated answer. The problem is this: when the user presses the Calculate button, the whole page is reloaded and, on a large page, this is very noticeable. Is there any way that I can get the calculation done and the result displayed without reloading...

In terms of disaplying text on the server side, which one is the better choice - an asp:Label or an asp:Placeholder? The only difference between the two that I know is that label puts a <span> tag around it's contents. Is there any other difference between the two, particularly performance-wise? Edit: Never mind a Placeholder cannot be used to hold text directly...I was probably thinking of something else =|

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
