How to link VS ASPX web designer to the code behind

Am running VS2008 and it seems my web project's files are not linked properly. I created a web ASCX page and am populating the page with controls. When I attempt to add events to the code behind (via the designer properties back-tab) the designer creates a script block. How do I link the ASCX page to its respective code-behind file? I prefer to deploy the code-behind via a complied DLL.  I am running C#.

<%@ Register assembly="DevExpress.Xpo.v8.2, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=9b171c9fd64da1d1" namespace="DevExpress.Xpo" tagprefix="dxxpo" %>

<script runat="server">

    protected void ASPxButtonUpdateReports_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Seems like you have not enabled the option to place code in seperate file.

While creating the new control visual studio displays a check box "place code behind in seperate file" you have to enable it. Delete the file and create it again and enable it.

Does VS have the ability to check this option (in or outside) the IDE? Perhaps I can toggle it there? I am not looking forward to rebuilding the already completed page.

Thanks for you quick response to the question!!!!!
