Namespace problem in my usercontrol

Hi Experts,

Here is the problem:

namespace MyDirectory.UserControls.MyDirectory.File
{
using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using Microsoft.Web.UI.WebControls;

public class NewFile : System.Web.UI.UserControl
     {
... code
                }
}

In my Asp .Net UserControl, if in the code, I want to use my other namespace like MyDirectory.MyDirectory.OtherNameSpace, then Visual Studio debugger tells me the namespace is unknown and I can only access to UserControls.MyDirectory.
The 2 namespaces MyDirectory.UserControls.MyDirectory shadows MyDirectory.MyDirectory. Why ?

How to use this namespace without any namespace title modify ?

Thanks in advance for your help. Hope I was clear.

Note that outside the usercontrol namespace, I can use both.

Try,

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using Microsoft.Web.UI.WebControls;
using MyDirectory.MyDirectory.OtherNameSpace;

namespace MyDirectory.UserControls.MyDirectory.File
{
public class NewFile : System.Web.UI.UserControl
     {
... code
                }
}

Thanks Chester_M_Ragel,

I already try this and works well outside the code.
But if I want to use it inside the code the first MyDirectory is UserControls.MyDirectory namespace ?????????? (ie Visual Studio hover menu) .
Is this a Visual Studio bug ?

Its actually not related with VS.Net. Its with .net Framework. Thats how it works.  B'cos of the nesting of MyDirectory and how .net interprets it, you can't reffer it like that.

Is there another way to do what I want or have I to change my namespace name ? If yes, hope framework 2.0 will solve this bug.

I'm not sure about other ways.. I'll recommend to use some other namespace. Also, In .Net FW beta 2.0 its the same:(
