Handle event from Web Custom Control on the Web Form


I have a Web Custom Control that has a Logout button. I would like to include this Web Custom Control on every page of my app. Now,

1) If I include all the code that's in the control on a web form everything works fine
2) If I move all the code from the web form to the Web Custom Control and include this control on the web form when I click on Logout nothing happens.

What am I missing?

Best, Nauman.
There shouldn't be any problem in 2. Check out that the events are attached and getting fired properly.

Also, why are you using Web Custom Control? you should try to use Web User Control instead.

Thanks for the replies. I am using a Web User Control... sorry, got the names confused.

I just can't understand why it isn't working...

Hello netele,

double click on your SignOut button on your WebUserControl and check out that it's pointing to the correct event.

Or paste your code of SignOut.
