    I created a user control that uses a repeater to output an unordered list for use with a jQuery gallery plugin.  I am using the JavaScriptEmbedControl to add the needed jQuery scripts to the Head.  Everything works and looks fine on the front end.  When I view the page in the backend I notice that the control just renders as an unordered list and if I view the source I do not see any of the linked jQuery or Css files for that control.  I would prefer, if possible, that the control render exactly as it does on the front end.

    Any ideas on what I might be missing?

    Hi Stacey,

    JavaScriptEmbedControl does not render any scripts when you are in edit mode. The reason behind this is that when you open a page for editing and drop a control on it, you cannot change the head tag of a page.Basically you need to refresh the entire page so you will get the script loaded on it.
