The @Reference Directive

When I want to add a user control to a page I use the @Register directive at the top of the page. and the I add the control to the markup. But what if I want to add a user control programmatically but I have no reference of it via the markup? That is where the @Reference directive comes to action.

What's the story?

We have a user control with the name myUserControl.aspx

1

We add at the top of the page the control we want to programmatically add like this...

2

And finally the controls is being added to the page like this...

3

In general, when we declare a control in the page layout we use @Register and when we create the control programmatically we use @Reference.

That's it ...
