    I have created a user control and declared a public event that I my user
    control raises. When I add my user control to a page, however, and click
    properties, I don't see the 'ligning bolt' and cant specify an event handler
    via the vs2005 poperties panel. I can add the event handler in code (using
    myEvent += MyHandler) but i was hoping to get this to work in the vs2005 IDE
    like it does for the standard web controls.
    Is this behavior inherent in Web User Controls, or is there a way to get
    the lighning bolt to show up when a user control is dropped onto a page.

    The "lightning bolt" is not (yet) supported for user controls in Visual

    You could always change your user control into a custom control, that will
    make it work.
