ASP.NET User Controls not displaying on Production Server
Posted on 2005-05-11
I have just released an ASP.NET application to my client that has been loaded on their testing server. The application users 2 user controls on each page; a banner and a tab strip. In the development environment these display and work correctly however in production the tabstrip control is not displaying. No errors are displayed - just no tabstrip. The controls are loaded dynamically into placeholders in the Page_Init routine as follows:
Dim tbsMenu as tabstrip
tbsMenu = DirectCast(LoadControl("tabstrip.ascx"), tabstrip)
tbsMenu.ID = "tbsMenu"
Where phMenu is the placeholder.
The tab strip uses IE Web controls which are installed on the server.
Any thoughts as to why this might be happening would be appreciated.
