Mulitple controls in one UserControl for Settings

I have 2 settings for my user control that depend on each other.  One is a drop down for a category.  Whatever category is selected determines what is displayed in a second 'items' listbox.  Then the user selects one of the items in the list box.

Is this possible to do?  I was hoping I could have one Settings user control implementing ISettingControl that would contain both the category drop down as well as the items list box, however it doesn't seem possible while also implementing the ISettingControl interface.  Is there another alternative or something else I have overlooked?

Thanks

Re: Mulitple controls in one UserControl for Settings

Hi,

There is example code in mojoPortal similar to what you describe. If you look in the source code under Web/Controls/CountryStateSetting.ascx you will see it has 2 dropdowns that depend on each other, the country dropdown triggers the state dropdown. The values are combined as a pipe separated string for both set and get of ISettingControl, like Country|State, so consuming code has to split it on the pipe to get the 2 individual values and combine it before setting the value on the ISettingControl.

Hope it helps,

Joe

I've wondered about this too, but just assumed it was not possible. Good to know that this capability is available!
