Hello,

I've got a custom component and I'm creating a Button in it and then attempting to add it to the custom controls parent, this doesn't seem to be working... The error I'm getting is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object", not quite sure why... Seems to imply that the custom component doesn't have a parent?

Thanks,
Uni
public class MyControl : Control
{
      MyControl(){
            Button btn=new Button();
            Parent.Controls.Add(btn);
      }
}
