LiveWrapper ASP.NET Server Control Information
This page includes information about the LiveWrapper Server Control, which is included in PowerWEB LiveControls for ASP.NET:
[View LiveControl Demo]
The LiveWrapper control contained with the LiveControls for ASP.NET suite provides callback interop support for complex 3rd party and Microsoft controls.
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
- 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">
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.
