Hello Expert!

Here is my point. I've a Projet Class Library who have 21 user controls with code behind file
ex: usercontrol1.ascx, usercontrol1.cs....

How can i include the ascx content into the dll file?

What i need is a easy way to use my usercontrol in different pages without register in the page.

When I try to add "controls" into the "<pages><controls>" in the web.config i got a error. I guest it's because i can't specify the "src" wheres the ascx are located.

I know i can manually add controls 1 by 1 on the page controls element in web.config.

But is there any way to add a "Global Reference"?

Thanks!
Projet namespace and assambly: mynamespace.customctrl
 

usercontrol.ascx

-----------------

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" Inherits="mynamespace.customctrl.ctrlone,mynamespace.customctrl " %>

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
 

usercontrol.cs

------------------

namespace mynamespace.customctrl

{

    public class ctrlone : System.Web.UI.UserControl

    {

        protected Button Button1;

        protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)

        {

            base.OnLoad(e);

            Button1.Text = "Custom text";            

        }        

    }

}
 

mypage.aspx

-------------------

<customctrl:ctrlone ID="ctrl1" runat="server" />
 
 

web.config

-----------------

<pages>

  <controls>

     <add tagPrefix="customctrl" namespace="mynamespace.customctrl" assembly="mynamespace.customctrl"/>

</controls>

</pages>

You have to regesiter the user controls in the page that's it's being used in that is the way the asp.net framework works. Sorry

OK, or maybe registring all controls individualy in pages/controls using this patern in web.config
<pages><controls>
<add tagPrefix="customctrl" tagName="ctrlone" src="~/MyUserControls/usercontrol.ascx" />
</controls></pages>

right?
Thanks
