ascx control within Tab

Hello, I am missing something basic I believe. I am familiar with other Tab controls, but cannot get the following functionality to work with UltimateTabStrip.

I have a custom user ascx control (tag MBC below)  within a tab. The user control also contains the UltimateEditor. I would like to alter the UltimateEditor content from the admin.aspx page. I cannot seem to gain access to the custom control? I see your examples of "tabstrip.findcontrol()" for simple controls, but none for custom user controls. What is the C# to accomplish this? Referencing the "ucMessageBody" control directly does not work (does not exist in current context).

Thank you for any guidance.


<kswc:UltimateTabstrip id="UltimateTabstrip1" runat="server" Scheme="SimpleHorizontal">

<kswc:Tab ID="utTab1" HeaderText="Message">


<mbc:MessageBody ID = "ucMessageBody" runat = "server" />






<table width = "99%">


<cc1:UltimateEditor id="UltimateEditor1" runat="server" EditorSource="~/UltimateEditorInclude/UltimateEditor.xml"></cc1:UltimateEditor>

Re: ascx control within Tab
It seems that you should use the FindControl method twice. Once to find the user control (ucMessageBody) and then to find the UltimateEditor control (UltimateEditor1) inside your user control.

We don't know the exact type of your MBC but you can use somethign similar to the following code and replace MBC with your own type:

MBC mbcControl = (MBC)UltimateTabstrip1.FindControl("ucMessageBody");


UltimateEditor ueControl = (UltimateEditor)mbcControl.FindControl("UltimateEditor1");
