Custom Control Question..

 Custom Control Question..

As I work my way through the C# / .NET topics, this week I've been
concentrating on custom controls.  I came accross the following code that
does not seem to work. I've been through a number of sources to see if I
missed anything but with no luck.. Any help would be appreciated.

1. The first custom control is derived from Button. And works great.. as
expected ( for what is does).

 [ToolboxData("<{0}:SingleControl runat=server></{0}:SingleControl>")]
 public class SingleControl : System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button
  public SingleControl()
   this.Width = 100;
   this.Height = 100;
   this.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.MyOnClick);
   this.Text = "A";
   this.Font.Bold = true;
   this.Font.Size = 50;

  private void MyOnClick( object sender, System.EventArgs e)
   if( Text == "A" )
    Text = "B";
    Text = "A";

2. Using CreateChildControls, I create an instance of this control within
the control WebControl. On the WebForm, I have one instance of the
SingleControl and one instance of the MultipleControls. The control displays
as expected BUT when you click on the MultipleControl, the SingleControl
changes from A to B ( and back again). The MultipleControls NEVER changes. I
suspect it is something I do not know...

The C# code is below.

 [ToolboxData("<{0}:MultipleControls runat=server></{0}:MultipleControls>")]
 public class MultipleControls : System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl
  protected override void CreateChildControls()
   SingleControl s = new SingleControl();
   Controls.Add( s );

and the Webform HTML code is..

Assembly="ControlBugParts" %>

Inherits="ControlBug.WebForm1" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<meta content="Microsoft Visual Studio 7.0" name=GENERATOR>
<meta content=C# name=CODE_LANGUAGE>
<meta content="JavaScript (ECMAScript)" name=vs_defaultClientScript>
<meta content= http://www.*-*-*.com/
<body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
<form id=Form1 method=post runat="server">
<cc1:singlecontrol id=SingleControl1 style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 10px;
POSITION: absolute; TOP: 177px" runat="server" Width="141px"
<cc1:multiplecontrols id=MultipleControls1 style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 15px;
POSITION: absolute; TOP: 14px" runat="server" Width="122px"


Any thoughts welcome! Thanks...
