    I have a custom control that inherits from a DataGrid control. I have
    a property that has an arraylist of strings. I want to add items as a
    child tag of the grid. How is the best way to do this. Here is what I
    have as of now.

    [ToolboxData("<{0}:OrdersDataGrid runat=server></{0}:OrdersDataGrid>"),
    public class OrdersDataGrid : System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGrid
    private ArrayList dataMethodParameter = null;
    System.Design", "System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor, System.Drawing"),

    Description("Parameter to Pass to the selected OrdersProvider
    public ArrayList DataMethodParameter
    get{return this.dataMethodParameter;}
    set{this.dataMethodParameter = value;}

    What I would like to happen is when items are added via the
    StringCollectionEditor they are child items of the control
    <cc1:OrdersDataGrid ... >
