hi all, ive created my own custom control, now in the code behind of the custom control file i can add

Name.Click += new EventHandler(name);

but on the codebehind of the page where ive used the custom control i cannot, is there anyway i can regsiter it as an available attribute to add?

to what part am i looking at for my problem?

do i need to create an abstract class instead of a usercontrol?

then add
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Link click?

that will add a click?

could you explain?
Thanks

I woudl suggest that you create a handle for the Click event and then register to that handle upon the page.

ive done it!

see below, then in your page ID.MyServerclick += new EvetnHandler(function);
public event EventHandler MyServerClick;

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Link.ServerClick += MyServerClick;
}

your advice did not help me though, i am new to c# and this is the first custom control ive made, i just ended up googling for another 4 hours as you can see in the time scale of my posts before coming across what i was trying to do.

i asked on here as i needed the answer there and then, not a hint to google for something else when i didnt even know what your hint meant

if i had that time to sit and google i wouldnt of asked on here! :S
