You can do like this.

[
       Description("<description>"),
       Category("<category>")
    ]
    public bool <propertyname>
    {
        get
        {
            object o = ViewState["<variable>"];
            return (o == null) ? false : (bool)o;
        }
        set
        {
            ViewState["<variable>"] = value;
        }
    }

Not the best description but yes properties can be accessed in code behind.

Hi CodeCruiser

I have a webserver custom control

And I am using the dll in some other project

In the custom control I have defined some properties of the control

When you use the control on the webpage you can access the properties.

Say I  have defined the property MTBText what I want is I should not use this propety in .aspx page

like

<FTB:MultiPurposeTextControl  id="test"  MTBText="abc"/>

but I should use it in code behind
like
test.MTBText = "abc";

I hope I am clear with my point now
If you still need any explanation

Please donot hesitate to ask me

What if you just declare such properties as public variables within the class instead of declaring them as properties using attributes?

            get;
            set;
        }
