I have a custom control I have made and I would like to use a dynamic variable assigned in the code behind of the aspx page.
I would like to pass a variable called topic to the control.
Here is the property of the control:
Property Topic() As String Get Return _Topic End Get Set(ByVal value As String) _Topic = value End Set End Property
The control is placed as so in the front end of my aspx page:
<MYControl:MY runat="server" id="MYID" Topic="TEST" />
and in the page load of the code behind I have:
MYID.Topic = "something"
With all of the above considered, the topic variable is sent as Test, and not something.
If I remove Topic=Test from the tag on the front end, then Topic is sent as null. I have tried so many different variations but for some reason Topic is always null. Every solution I seem to come accross seems to suggest I do what I have just posted. The only thing I am asking to do is be able to dynamically set the topic variable in code behind.
