I have a master page that has a usercotnrol on it. There is another page that uses the masterpage. On the masterpage i have a usercotnrol, let's say its id is header. I have my page using the <%@ MasterType VirtualPath="~/MasterPages/TheMasterPage.master"  %> directive.

I have tried creating a readonly property that returns the usercontrol, but I cannot access any of the usercontrols  public properties.  
Also, from the aspx page I cannot access the usercontrols namespace. I can from the master page an think it is because I have inhertited from the web.page.ui class? Anyway, here is an example of how my codebehinds look in pseudo code :
MasterPage:
Namespace SS.Masterpages
Partial Class TheMasterPage
Public Readonly Property SSTheUserControl as SS.UserControls.TheUserControl&.
End Class
End Namespace

UserControl:
NameSpace SS.UserControls
      Public Class TheUserControl
      Public Property Property1 as string&.
      Public Property Property2 as string&.
      End Class
End NameSpace
The ASPX Page
NameSpace SS.Ppages
      Partial Class Index
      End Class
End NameSpace
So, what is the best way for me to access the userControl and any public properties? Thanks to all who look at this.
