Visual Studio creates UserControls as wrong type

C

Carlo Razzeto

Hey, I've got a couple of production UserControls going in my companies web
system, but I'm having a couple of annoying issues with them. One of them,
for instance is a ScannerButton control which launches an in house scanning
application from a web page. When vs.net 2005 add the variable to the
..aspx.desginer.vb file it adds it as System.Web.UserControl rather than
WebAppNameSpace.ScannerButton which is what the object actually is. Is there
any way around this? The control is registered through out the web system
via the web.config system.web / pages / controls / add XML tag. It looks
something like this..

<system.web>
<pages>
<controls>
<add tagPrefix="Empiric" tagName="ScannerButton"
src="~/UserControls/ScannerButton.ascx" />
<add tagPrefix="Empiric" tagName="DateBox"
src="~/UserControls/DateBox.ascx" />
</controls>
</pages>
</system.web>
