I created a user control.   When I drop it on the page, it tells me it needs the runat="server" attribute.  How can I code the control itself so it has runat="server"?

A user control is a module that you drop on another page.

When you register the control on the page and create an instance of that control, you have to tell the page to run the instance at the server.

There's no way I know of to get around putting in runat="server".  What are you trying to accomplish by not having it there?

I do want it there.  I just was hoping to not have to add it when I put it on the page, but instead code it right within the control. This is my own control I have written, not a third party thing.

Understood, but the page still needs to know that your control should be runat = server.  There's no way around that.

Hey its not possible to use the user control without runat=server
Because these controls are derived from System.Web.UI.UserControl class
And if you remove the runat=server property then it gives you only warning but it will not be rendered on the page.
