Master Page Control in DataSource Select Parameter, 2.0

P: n/a
In ASP.NET 2.0, is it possible to use a control that's on a Master Page as a
select parameter in a content page's datasource control? On the content page
in the VWD Configure Data Source wizard (which I love!), I was disappointed
when adding a WHERE clause that the Control ID list in the wizard didn't
include any of the Master Page controls. In the Design view, I can see the
drop down list I want to use on the Master Page, shadowed and just out of
reach! How do I use a Master Page control as a datasource select parameter
for my content pages? I’m afraid it’ll take some coding, which I’m not very
good at yet!
Many thanks for your help and guidance,
David

I posted a while back on how Master Pages can be dynamically chosen:

"ASP.NET 2.0 Beta Preview" published by WROX and authored by Bill Evjen
founder of ineta has really helped me understand the event model whn using
Master Pages. Very well done as are other aspects Evjen writes about.
