Geting data from an ASCX control

Hi All,

I have an ASCX control which I have added to a ASPX page ... I now want to know two things:

1) How do i get data from the control into my parent page ....
The problem is that the control is defined in the HTML section and there is no reference to it in my codebehind so I don't know how to get to it.

2) How can I catch events from the control on my page ....

To get your control working on your page you need to put in two lines of code:

this one goes at the start of your aspx file that you want to call ya control into:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="Map" TagName="DisplayStatus" src="../Controls/Public/MapDisplayStatus.ascx"%>

and then you place the following bit of code where you want your control to display:
<Map:DisplayStatus runat="server" id="Links1"></Map:DisplayStatus>

Hope this helps.

Ok I got it to work but my question is how to get data from the control and how to get event info

Ok that kind of helps with the events ... but I still need to access the getters/setters of the ASCX control on my page ...
