LiveWrapper ASP.NET Server Control Information

This page includes information about the LiveWrapper Server Control, which is included in PowerWEB LiveControls for ASP.NET:

The LiveWrapper control contained with the LiveControls for ASP.NET suite provides callback interop support for complex 3rd party and Microsoft controls.


Browser Compatibility

LiveControls have been tested and are fully "callback-compatible" in the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0+ for Windows
  • Microsoft Interner Explorer 5.0+ for Macintosh
  • Netscape 7.1+ for Windows
  • Netscape 7.1+ for Macintosh OS X
  • Mozilla 1.3+ for Windows
  • Mozilla 1.3+ for Macintosh OS X
  • Firefox for Windows
  • Firefox for Macintosh OS X
  • Camino for Macintosh OS X
  • Konqueror based engines
  • Galeon
  • Opera 5.0+

If a browser which is not compatible accesses a page containing LiveControls, the controls will fall back to the standard ASP.NET functionality. For example, a LiveButton issues a transparent callback when clicked. If on a non-compatible page, the button will still be displayed, but will cause a standard postback when clicked.

Server Tag Example

The following tags demonstrate typical settings for a LiveWrapper control.

<cc1:LiveWrapper id="LiveWrapper" runat="server">
   <igtbl:ultrawebgrid id="mygrid"></igtbl:ultrawebgrid>

Note about code-behind usage: Due to the complexities of rendering 3rd-party controls in a callback, it is not advised to dynamically create a LiveWrapper control for code-behind use.
