    Hi all,

    I have a aspx page that inherits from a cs class which is common for all
    pages in my application.
    In that cs file, I define some veriable.

    the webBasePage.cs:

    namespace MyAPP{
    public class myWebBase : System.Web.UI.Page {
    public String myVar = "I'm there";

    Then I have the page:

    namespace myAPP{
    public class pageTemplate : myWebBase {

    Now I have a user control I add dynamically into the page:

    namespace myAPP.controls{

    public class clsWebBaseControl : System.Web.UI.UserControl {
    //I would like to be able to access the variable "myVar" I declared in
    the first cs file.

    How ca I do that.
    I tried : Parent.Page.myVar but it is not recognised.

    Could someone help me?

  2. Gerald,

    Try casting Parent.Page:

    myWebBase myPage = (myWebBase) Parent.Page;
    myPage.myVar = "Hello, world!";

    Hope this helps.
