In this post, I will explain how you can pass parameter to the dynamically added (from code behind) User Control. Most of you might aware of how we can achieve this in web application project. Following is the code for that

   1: Dim objCon As Control = Page.LoadControl("~/Controls/MyControl.ascx")
   2: Ctype(objCon,MyControl).PropertyOne = "Test"
   3: Ctype(objCon,MyControl).PropertyTwo = "USAM"
   4: MyPanel.Controls.add(objCon)

Now what if you have a web site project which does not have the pre-compiled assemblies and you are no more able to access the class of your user control. That is what the sum of last two ays.

Here is how you can do that by using System.reflection.

   1: Dim objCon As Control = Page.LoadControl("~/Controls/MyControl.ascx")
   2: 'Creating Dynamic Assmebly which holds control
   3: Dim objAssembly As Assembly = Compilation.BuildManager.GetCompiledAssembly("~/Controls/MyControl.ascx")
   4: 'You should definately know the name of your user control class
   5: Dim objType As Type = objAssembly.GetType("Controls_MyControl")
   6:  
   7: 'Properties
   8: Dim objPropOne As PropertyInfo = objType.GetProperty("PropertyOne")
   9: Dim objPropTwo As PropertyInfo = objType.GetProperty("PropertyTwo")
  10:  
  11: 'Setting Value of Properties
  12: bjPropOne.SetValue(objCon, 1, Nothing)
  13: objPropTwo.SetValue(objCon, 13, Nothing)
  14:  
  15: 'Finally placing control on the page
  16: pnlCommentsCon.Controls.Add(objCon)

So in this way you can pass parameters to the dynamically added user control.   Posted on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 8:36 PM Asp.net , Vb.net , .net | Back to top
