Creating a custom control
Posted on 2006-07-11
I need a little help with this. I'm trying to create a custom control - based off a label, that will take the current logged on user ID (my.user.name) and convert it to the user's full name.
I have the code to accomplish all of this - but I can't seem to get it to work the way I'd like.
I want, in the end, to have this custom-label, that when placed on a form and compiled, will show the above information without any other coding.
I'm really new to custom controls, so presumably that's where my problem lies to begin with.
Anyone more experienced care to lend a hand? I'm using both .net 2003/2005 -but I'd rather get it working in the newer version. Thanx! (I can post code if necessary)
