Can't set value to the property "Width" of my custom webcontrol

In webform.aspx: <cc:ctlB ID="ctl1" runat="server" Width="200px" />

If set value to width property, I will get a error that say ctlB.Page is null. This control will be fine with no width property, why?

Could anybody help me ? thanks

simple, your CreateChildControls references Page before it has been set.
your control should handle being created and its properties set before
being added to the Pages control collection. to work in a designer it
should handle nopage and no request.

defer references to other controls (like the page) until prerender or
render.

thank you, bruce!
the problem be solved by your help.

But i can't read embeded resource with no page object.

this._schImage.ImageUrl = Page.ClientScript.GetWebResourceUrl(typeof(ctlB),
"Search.gif");

How can i get embeded resource in design mode to instead of
GetWebResourceUrl method ?
