Hi
Has anyone come across this problem, i'm adding localization to the webpages and when adding the meta:resourcekey to the label control with a AssociatedControlID="txtUserName" it throws this error:

Unable to find control with id 'txtUserName' that is associated with the Label 'lblEmail'.

Here is the code:
<asp:Label ID="lblEmail" AssociatedControlID="txtUserName"
                    runat="server" meta:resourcekey="lblEmail" >
                    <asp:TextBox ID="txtUserName" runat="server" AccessKey="1" TabIndex="1"
                        Columns="45" MaxLength="150" SkinID="sknTextBox" ValidationGroup="Step1"
                        ToolTip="Enter Email Address" ></asp:TextBox>
                                   </asp:Label>

Remove AssociatedControlID="txtUserName" and works as expected

Resource file

lblEmail.Text  value is Email

Any help would be appreciated

Have you tried this

<asp:Label ID="lblEmail" AssociatedControlID="txtUserName"
                    runat="server" meta:resourcekey="lblEmail" />
                    <asp:TextBox ID="txtUserName" runat="server" AccessKey="1" TabIndex="1"
                        Columns="45" MaxLength="150" SkinID="sknTextBox" ValidationGroup="Step1"
                        ToolTip="Enter Email Address" ></asp:TextBox>
