I have a control in my template that is exposed for the admin to change from the designer. The "Edit" button shows up for the template's control and am able to edit the Width (for example) and save. I save and go back to the admin designer and see that the width is persisted and indeed the Width value is still there.
The problem is on the public side. The Width is blank even though it shows up in admin.
Here's what I did- I placed a label control in my ascx template:
Then in my SimpleControl, I set up the layout template paths and tie this control to a property like this:
public Label lblTitle
On the public side, when I put a breakpoint at that property control, the label's width property I saved in the admin designer is blank, and what's strange is that the Width value even show up when I go back to the designer indicating it is persisted in the system somewhere. The public side doesn't get this value tho. The Width property is blank in the public side. Is there something I am missing?
