Calling 1 user control from inside another user control

Hi Experts

I have a Header, Content and Footer split in my Main.aspx page; what I do is call a user control on my page load event:

ContentPane.Visible = True

Then I want to call a second user control from in side “UC1.ascx” and put it in my HeaderPane.
For example:
HeaderPane.Visible = True

How do I get this working?

Thanks for the help

Dim uc As UserControl
 uc = New UserControl()
uc = Page.FindControl("UC2.ascx")

Thanks for the help.

When I use: “HeaderPane.Controls.Add(uc)” I get an error:”HeaderPane is not declared”.

I used: Response.Redirect("Home.aspx?headerpane=LoborControls/uc.ascx")

how do you declare your HeaderPane?

In my Webpage.aspx :

<form id="Main" name="HomePage" method="post" runat="server" class="Body">
<TABLE id="Table1" width="100%" height="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="3"
            <TD id="HeaderPane" runat="server" height="60" bgcolor="#296342"></TD>
            <TD id="MenuPane" runat="server" height="20"></TD>
            <TD id="ContentPane" runat="server"></TD>
            <TD id="FooterPane" runat="server" height="20"></TD>

What I want to do is open a user control say UC2.ascx in the Webpage.aspx’s “HeaderPane” from inside my UC1.ascx.
