Nope, tried what you did and ended up with a 164 Errors. Which is what I encountered when I first tried that course of action.
When I try to drag and drop an .ascx file into my project:
1. All the asp objects lose their context, on the back end. On the front end of the .ascx file things look OK, eg:
<asp:Label ID="lblCList1" runat="server" CssClass="lblDateBox" Text="* You must click on the checkbox to complete the application"></asp:Label>
but on the back end
lblCList1.Visible = true;
Fails, as the "lblCList1" text throws a "does not exist in current context" error. It is like all the asp objects loose their properties as objects, so when they are used on the back end, they are unknown.
I am using a code behind statement at the top of the .ascx page:
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="ScholarshipPublic.ascx.cs" Inherits="ScholarshipPublic" %>
So you would think it should find the back end file, but no... it's all gone to crap.
Also, I have to say that when I started this I used the "Widget with designer"
, from the Sifefinity Thunder start page. Not sure if this was the correct choice, as I still don't have a full understanding of all this new Sitefinity functionality.
