UserControl Argument Array

Hi all,

I have an usercontrol class whereby I bubble click methods back to the parent ASPX page to dynamically load other usercontrols (much like a wizard).

As the moment I simply call OnBubbleClick(nextUserControlName); which is caught back on the aspx and loads the next control to the updatepanel

Now a couple of my usercontrols now require different variables to be set. For example I have a Page.ascx where I want to pass across a ID field to pull the relevant text from a database and also and Error.ascx where I will pass an error message and error dump to be displayed.

I have been thinking of the best way about this and thought about changing the OnBubbleClick(nextUserControlName) to be;

OnBubbleClick(string nextUserControlToLoad, string[,] args)

Open in new window


so in this situation i would just pass string['ID', '2'] and in the page load for the page.ascx test for the ID field being present

in the error case string['message', 'error message',  'dump', 'error dump']

does this sound the best way of going about things?

Also, in this case how would I 'search' the array on the page load? and would this have any impact on performance from say, creating types and test for these?

I would use a dictionary so it is easier to identify/get the keys you are using:
OnBubbleClick(string nextUserControlToLoad, Dictionary<string, string> args)

Open in new window


Note: Another option (if you found yourself repeating the same name value constructs) is to create a class with Id, Message and Dump as public properties.
