ASPX, ASCX and JavaScript Interrelationships

Greetings;

I have 3 sets of entities as follows:

1. Two dozen ASPX pages which incorporate a common header
2. A stored JavaScript source which references controls in a #include in the ASPX pages
3. A #include containing HTML defining the header presentation.

Using Visual Studio 2010 Pro, #include statements are not processed in order for me to see the entire marked up page when in design mode for an ASPX page.

If I try and place the #include HTML in an ASCX user control, the JavaScript returns an error indicating the control I'm attempting to access (which is defined in the ASCX user control) in the JavaScript does not exist.

I also attempted to include the JavaScript with the ASCX page which also resulted in JavaScript errors.

I attempted to create a Master page, however, the JavaScript gave me a similar error after creating a new ASPX page using the Master page. The Master page included the common elements of each page including the #include HTML and the JavaScript.

Is there a way using an ASCX user control to have the #include HTML and subsequently have the JavaScript (referenced in each ASPX page) reference controls within the ASCX file?


Much thanks ... David

You did not include any code to review or specific error messages to help resolve this question. However, #include seems to be from the old .asp (pre-dotNet) days. Including HTML would be done by using ascx user controls which could emit HTML in various ways (inline HTML, reading a template or "include" file, etc).

As far as having JavaScript interact with controls within the ascx user control, it would actually be working with the Html controls, DOM, or perhaps jQuery objects on the client side and not the server controls.

Greetings;

I did not initially provide enough data for the question to be resolved. This was an assumption on my part and not intentional.

Between the time I posted the question and now, I found an acceptable solution.


Thank you ... David
