I set the control at my end and it did not throw errors. I attached a short video that illustrates this.
Are there issues if you move the logic to user control instead of custom control that inherits from SimpleView?
Also you should use VirtualPathProvider to register the template
and LayoutTemplatePath property. For LayoutTemplateName you should return null.
