I am looking for some good reference/hands-on book for developing custom web server controls using ASP.NET 2.0. I am aware of the
ASP.NET AJAX Server Controls For .NET Framework 3.5' book, however, it seems to be the next step after having good Custom Server control development knowledge. I came across the book
Microsoft ASP.NET Server Controls and Components' published in Sep 2002 (MSPress). I was wondering if there is any book on .NET 2.0.
My aim is to get proficient in non AJAX Server Controls in ASP.NET 2.0 and the moving on to the Advance ASP.NET Server Controls for .net 3.5.
So, any advice on how to go about learning not just the basics but also the advanced level concepts for developing non AJAX Server Controls in ASP.NET 2.0?. Is the Sep 2002 MPress book still a valid read?.

back in the days I bought the book from MSPress. Liked it a lot.
I suggest that you also take a look at these articles: Creating controls.

Thank you Kris.
Would you mind commenting on my plan of action:
1. Learn the Control development (including DataBound controls) from the MSPress book and the articles that you have recommended.
2. Dive onto AJAX capabilities for Sever Controls using the other .NET 3.5 book from Addison-Wesley.
Is there anything that I shall miss between steps 1 and 2?

though still a great book it lacks some information about control development starting from 2.0. I would recommend reading the articles first which will already give you some insight in control development. Then you could dig into that book.

I think the right place for you to start is
Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Server Control and Component Development. It's very thorough, you'll be in good shape with it.
