Custom Control Add Control Dynamically.

P: n/a
Hi
Iam new to MS .Net technology just getting along with it....I created a custom control ,which takes in a query and displays the data in a tabular format....something similar to a datagrid.

Since its a custom Control I drag and drop and use it in my Pages. I overload the render method of my Custom Control and I pass the data that is to be displayed.

Now there is a requisite I have to add a Control ( Say for ex a Dropdown List box)
Could you please suggest me how do I add a Web-Control dynamically from a Custom -Control in to the webform.

And someone could please suggest the difference between
A web ( server Control and a Custom Control).

You may want to take a look at the resources at
ASP.NET Server Controls
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...-us/vbcon/html
/vbconwebformscontrolssg.asp). In particular, you'll be creating a composite
control.

And someone could please suggest the difference between
A web ( server Control and a Custom Control).


Those are really two terms for the same thing, except that a Custom Control
is one that you create - it didn't come with .NET.

The other term which confused me as a newcomer was "user control". That's a
different animal, a greatly-simplified custom control with a large number of
restrictions.

You might also be interested in the following, if you'll be writing a lot of
custom controls:
