Each control has a Page property. You need to cast this property to the specific page class you want. If you want the current page methods (the ones you have added) then cast to the name of your page class.

Using delegate.

You can search for how to use delegate for more advance view.

Let say, in your ascx out side of the class you declare:
public delegate void PopulateCMDropDowns();
public partial class Controls_MyControl
{
           public event PopulateCMDropDowns evt_Populate;
           ...
          Protected Sub DiagramDropDownList_DataB......
                If MyContext.ReportID = "CustomMetadata" Then
           
           =========== here i want to call the Sub PopulateCMDropDowns()
              evt_Populate();
                 Else

}

in your aspx file, when you render or add this control (ucMyControl) to your page,  define the event for that control by:
ucMyControl.evt_Populate += PopulateCMDropDowns(PopulateCMDropDowns)

intelligense will help you to fullfil, it should be easy.

Hope this helps

Sorry   mybad I forgot the new word.
it should be:

ucDiagramChoice.evt_Populate += new PopulateCMDropDowns(PopulateCMDropDowns);

You can understand delegate is like a function pointer. It is every useful in your case (I use it a lot), the declaration of the delegate must have the same return type and parameters type of the invoke function.

Tell me if this works, you might wanna play around that in order to make the delegate work. And trust me: this is the right direction. Cause we have ton of similar cases.
