I am working on a Customer Server Control that extends another control. There is no problem with attaching to other controls on the form.
I would like to pass a method to the control in the ASPX markup.
<c:MyCustomerControl runat=server InitializeStuffCallback="InitializeStuff">
So, I tried using reflection to access the given method name from the Parent.
Something like (in VB)
Dim pageType As Type = Page.GetType Dim CallbackMethodInfo As MethodInfo = pageType.GetMethod( "MethodName" ) 'Also tried sender.Parent.GetType.GetMethod("MethodName") sender.Parent.Parent.GetType.GetMethod("MethodName")
The method isn't found, because it just isn't apart of the Page. Where should I be looking? I'm fairly sure this is possible because I've seen other controls do similar.
I forgot to mention, my work-around is to give the control events and attaching to them in the Code-behind.
