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.

    I'm happy to give you the points even though I win the dumb award for forgetting to copy the webctrl_client folder to the application root directory on the server!

    Cheers, Tim.
