Custom User Control Running Multiple Times

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a strange problem that I ran across testing something else on my site.  On my Default.aspx page, I register a user control and call it to render and fill in some HTML on the page.

<%@ Register Src="controls/Home/GetFriendFeed.ascx" TagName="GetFriendFeed" TagPrefix="uc1" %>

<uc1:GetFriendFeed ID="GetFriendFeed1" runat="server" />

When I go to Default.aspx, it calls the control once, not a problem.  I have a nested MasterPage (not sure if that is the cause), that is the same for both of these pages.  When I go to another page, profile.aspx, that does NOT have the @Register or the user control anywhere on the page, the user control executes 3 times. 

I'm not sure what the cause of this is.  Any help or advice of where to look would be helpful!


Thank you

Multiple Instances of User Control


I have a user control that I place on a page severl times.  When I make a selection on a ddl in one one control the SelectedIndexChanged event fires for all the control on the page for that ddl.  So I get duplication of an insert that I do.  Is there a way to make sure these events are isolated so this doesn't happen.


User control with multiple item content

I have a user control that I would like to contain multiple items as its content, similar to the way a <StackPanel> works. I tried using a <ContentPresent/> but it will only let me use a single item as the control's content. What's the best way to go about this? I realize I could just require the user to put a <StackPanel> or <Grid> or similar control as the content of the user control, but i would rather not do that if possible.   I'm not sure if it matters, but this control actually has several content presenters. Some of them will contain a single item and some will contain multiple items.

Multiple Instances Same User Control

I have an ASP.NET page inside of an ASP.NET Master page, and inside the page I have two instances of the same web user control. I have given them different IDs, but when I click a button on the first user control it causes the second user control to do the expected activity and the first one does nothing. Is there something I need to do to make sure that the controls don't get confused? P.S. The expected activity is that when the button is clicked one panel object is disabled and another is shown. When the button is clicked on custom control 1 the panel on custom control 2 is disabled and it's next panel is shown and custom control 1 does nothing. Thanks for the help. 

Is there a way in VB.Net to embed a custom user control to a web page based on Word or Excel

Hi Everyone.  I'm looking to create a web page that would be used on a local intranet that would use a custom control based on Word and Excel.  I've used code previously to embed it in a Windows application but wasn't sure if anyone knew of any examples out there on how to embed a custom control into a ASP.Net page.

Problem binding business objects to custom user control properties

I have created a user control (supplierPicker) intended to allows a supplier database to be searched and a supplier selected. I want to be able to use this control in a number of other user controls, by binding the suppplierID property of the supplierPicker to a supplierID property in a business object, which is set as the datacontext of the parent user control. When I do this, and there is a supplierID specified in the business ofbject, the binding sets the supplierID in the supplierPicker control and it shows the correct supplier name in the textbox. However when the supplierID DependencyProperty is changed from within the supplierPicker the newly selected supplier name is shown in the TextBox, but the SupplierID does not propogate back to the business object. Other controls on the parent form work fine, so the binding to the business object seems to be ok. Any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong here would be grately appreciated.  This one has been driving me nuts for days! Snipped code for the supplier picker:         public partial class SupplierPicker : UserControl, INotifyPropertyChanged     {         public static DependencyProperty SupplierIDProperty;         public event PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChan

DataAnnotation on multiple user controls displaying on wrong control


I have a table that displays a user control on each row. The user controls are strongly typed to a viewmodel which contains DataAnnotation style validation. If one of the rows has invalid data entered (lets say the 3rd row) the data annotation validates display agains the first row/user control.

How do I get the data annotation to show against the relevant user control?

I'd post a pic to show what I mean except it will not display it!.:/

Custom Control: Multiple children, "{0} can accept only one child."


Long story short - I'm trying to build a custom accordion control that in essence is a Scroll Viewer wrapped around a Stack Panel.  Once I get past the hump I'm at now which is getting the custom control to accept multiple children I should have no further issues.  


Below is my style for the control:


  <Style TargetType="{x:Type local:ScrollableAccordion}">
    <Setter Property="Template">
        <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type local:ScrollableAccordion}">
          <Border Background="{TemplateBinding Background}"
              BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}"
              BorderThickness="{TemplateBinding BorderThickness}">
          <ScrollViewer Height="{TemplateBinding Height}"
                 Width="{TemplateBinding Width}"

Parameter queries running multiple times


Currently running SQL 2005 sp2 SSRS.  We were in the process of tuning a report's queries against DB2 when our DBA noticed in the tracing log that the queries used for the parameter list is ran 2 times for each parameter.  They are cascading parameters with a Date only, but we tested removing the dependancy and the parameter query still ran 2 times.  We tested setting all the default values for initially opening the report and after we just opened the report and it rendered, nothing else was touched, the parameter queries all ran 2 times.  Any idea of why this happens.  I tried to search for this and couldn't find anything.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control
