user control public properties unaccessible from codebehind

I have a user control that I cannot access the public properties. I have given it a classname directive and it still does not show up in my codebehind.

I have scoured this site and all over looking for solutions. Everything I read shows me this is a nobrainer, so there is obviously something I'm missing.

Any ideas?

Attached is the user control snippet
<%@ Control Language="C#" ClassName="WxViewer" %>

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml" %>

<%@ Import Namespace="Weather" %>

 

<script language="c#" runat="server">

 

    private Decimal _latitude = new Decimal(35.47);

    private Decimal _longtitude = new Decimal(-97.45);

    private string _areaname = "Enid";

    

    private string _cssClassWarm = "Warm";

    private string _cssClassCold = "Cold";

    private string _cssClassNormal = "Normal";

 

    private Unit _width = Unit.Parse("50%");

 

    

    public string longtitude

    { set { _longtitude = Decimal.Parse(value); } }

 

    public string latitude

    { set { _latitude = Decimal.Parse(value); } }

 

    public string areaName

    { set { _areaname = value; }

        get { return _areaname; }    

    }

    

   <<<<< snip >>>>>>>

    

</script>

 

<h1><asp:label runat="server" ID="lblAreaName"/> Area Weather Outlook</h1>

<p>

    <asp:Table runat="server" ID="WeatherTable" />

    <asp:Label runat="server" ID="WeatherLabel" Visible="false" Text="Weather Information Currently Not Available." />

</p>

Here in the default codebehind, I cannot access WxControl properties. They are not available.


using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.UI;

using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
 

namespace PANDK

{

    public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page

    {

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(ReadCookie("PANDK_Location")))

            {

                

            }

        

        }
 

<<< snip >>>

WxViewer myControl = (WxViewer)this.Content2.FindControl("WxControl");

myControl.latitude = "10";

Yes, this would be the way to do it if it worked - but WxViewer class isn't showing up. I cant access it. I can access the WxControl control, but the properties aren't showing up.

I'm using VWD2008.

I found the problem - I was using an older style user control without a codebehind. Once I rewrote the control with a codebehind everything seems good.
