Calling ASCX user control randomly

Hello, I've a user control I register as follows:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="db" TagName="Banner" Src="~/Banner.ascx" %>

and I call it this way when I need it:

<db:Banner ID="Banner1" runat="server" />


My problem is that the file Im registering (banner.ascx) is not always the same.

Each customer may display a different file, as banner.ascx, or banner2.ascx, etc

The file name is stored on a session variable called banner, so when I try this:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="db" TagName="Banner" Src="~/<%=session("banner")%>" %>

I obviously get an error.

Is there a workaround to assign the name of the user control file randomly?

Thanks.

there is a work around for this problem , you just need to create an object of the user control in the calling page, and in an place holder you can add that control.

for more reference you can check the below links
