    I changed a few of my controls to assemblies, now how do I go about changing the database to point to the assembly instead of the ascx usercontrol?  I would REALLY like to avoid having to delete\re-add controls and content

    Just modify the sf_WebControlBase table perhaps?

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Yes this is the table which stores the types of the controls are stored. What you should to is to run a query against this table and get all results where the Type matches your old type (url for user control). Then you should update this to the new value which is going to be in the web.confing toolbox section for registering the controls. Make sure you backup your database before performing this.

    Kind regards,
