How to define a property in the user control?

Posted on 2006-06-20
Last Modified: 2006-11-18
I have created a user control: myUserControl.ascx. A property is defined as follows:

private string target;

    public String Target
        get { return target; }
        set { target = value;}

myUserControl is registered with the master page:
<%@ Register Src="../UserControls/myUserControl.ascx" TagName="myUserControl" TagPrefix="uc11" %>

My intention is to set the property Target externally. But when I click on the user control on the master page, it shows nothing on the property page. Anyone can offer some ideas?

This link provides useful informaton for exposing the property in the designer.

Actually, developer can set the property in the aspx while declaring the user control as follows:

<uc11:myUserControl ID="myUserControl1" runat="server" Target="myTestTarget.aspx" />
