K, so, well , erm ...
I have a Custom Server Control [A].
I'd like one of the properties of this control to point to another (custom) control [B] on the same webform.
(A&B both being extended databoundobjects)
At the moment, I've got it [A] set up with a textual property that can be set to [B]'s ID, in the properties window at design time.
However, wanting to be 'tidy' , I'd rather the user be led to a 'browser' dialogue where they can select the other target control explicity.
Typing the ID in manualy is messy and prone to mistype/error.
So ... I guess I'm looking to see how I can set up a 'Properties Window' entry, that when seelcted, bring up a list of available controls form the webform.
Hope I've explained all of that ok ...
