Error when Load control dynamically with LoadControl

    Hi,

    I have created a user control (ASP.NET 2.0) in the folder "mining" of my
    project. There's no namespace by default, but other aspx pages are in the
    namespace iMinr.mining.

    The declaration of this user control goes like this :

    public partial class mining_ucPubDetails : System.Web.UI.UserControl

    And in the ASCX page, this is the control declaration

    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"
    CodeFile="ucPubDetails.ascx.cs" Inherits="mining_ucPubDetails" %>

    Now, in a C# page in the iMinr.mining namespace where it's specified :

    using iMinr.mining;

    I try to load dynamically the control:

    mining_ucPubDetails pub =
    (mining_ucPubDetails)LoadControl("ucPubDetails.ascx");

    And if I compile, I got this :

    The type or namespace name could not be found

    The weird thing is that it works on my dev server despite this error. But on
    production, I doesn't.

    Why the project can't find the control class? How can I load a user control
    dynamically?

    Thanks

    Solved.

    I added this to the aspx page where I use the control:

    <%@ Register Src="ucPubDetails.ascx" TagName="ucPubDetails" TagPrefix="uc" %>
    <%@ Reference VirtualPath="~/mining/ucPubDetails.ascx" %>
