Hi there,

I have designed a usercontrol which basically holds some graphics and a Menu bar....

I then place this usercontrol into my various aspx pages...

question is... the webform <form>... where should it go, in the usercontrol and in the aspx??

Would it bee problem if it was also in the usercontrol, does it merge or support some kind of inheritence??

Ideas?? thanks

My suggestion is to put your <form runat="server"> in your aspx pages, make your user controls without form tags... there will be problems if there are multiple forms with the runat="server" attribute, only one per page ,you can have multiple forms per page but only one with the runat="server" attribute.

any user control loaded into the page will be a child of its parent page and accessible as such.

rodnex was right, you should make your user controls without form tags. The form tags should place in aspx file. When you place your usercontrol into an aspx file, mannually declare your usercontrol in associated aspx.cs file, then you can handle your usercontrol.

For example, i have usercontrol name MyUserControl.ascx and aspx file name MyFile.aspx. MyFile.aspx should have <form runat="server">, MyUserControl without form tags. When using drag & drop MyUserControl to MyFile.aspx, automatically the name of it will be MyUserControl1, then go to MyFile.aspx.cs declare a new variable (protected, private, public...) MyUserControl MyUserControl1;

And then you can handle MyUserControl via MyUserControl1 instance

Hope this help

Hi .. thanks everyone for there comments...

I suppose there is no special way of removing the form??

Just goto into the html and remove the <form> tags??

or is there an automatic wya orsomething?

There is nothing special about the tag, you can just remove the opening <form> and closing </form> tags and from the html.

If by 'automatic way', you mean some way to help you remove the tags... most IDE's have a find/replace feature, you can do mass find/replace on to locate/replace all the form tags from a project or folder, hope that helps.
