Saving values from User Control to database

I have a user control that has two textboxes

<tr>
<td align="right" >Select Question Color:</td>
<td ><asp:TextBox ID="txtquestioncolor" class="color" value="ffffff" runat="server" /></td>
</tr>
<tr >
<td align="right">Select Font Color:</td>
<td ><asp:TextBox ID="txtfontcolor" class="color"  value="66ff00" runat="server"  /></td>
</tr>

The page that uses this control has a reference to the usercontrol:

<%@ Register src="~/UserControls/ColorPicker_03.ascx" tagname="ColorPicker_03" tagprefix="uc1" %>

and is called here:

<uc1:ColorPicker_03 ID="colorpicker1" runat="server" />


The user will  see a page where, among other things, are able to select two colors.  I need to save the colors selected to my database.

I have a Save function in the code behind like so that is saving to a class

            Question.Question = txtQuestion.Text
            Question.ShortDesc = txtShrtDesc.Text.Trim()
            Question.PrintDesc = txtPrintDesc.Text.Trim()
            Question.QuestionColor = txtquestioncolor.Text
            Question.FontColor = txtfontcolor.Text


Before I put the color text boxes into a user control, I was able to save the values of txtquestioncolor and txtfontcolor.  Now those two text boxes are empty.

My question is how do I read the values from the two text boxes on the user control?

on the user control code-behind page create two property like

public string GetQuestionColor
{
   get { return txtQuestionColor.Text;}
}
public string GetFontColor
{
   get { return txtFontColor.Text;}
}


Now,on the code-behind of the Page where you have used this User Control, you can access this control property by the code like
 
string questionColor = ControlName1. GetQuestionColor;
string fontColor =  ControlName1. GetFontColor;

Hope, you understand the concept,and this will help you to fix your problem.
