I am new to Sitefinity and have been asked to migrate a site from 3.6 to 5.2. The majority of the migration has gone very smoothly but I have an issue with existing ascx controls that I haven't been able to figure out.
When editing a control in 3.6 I can see and set control properties. Once these controls are migrated I no longer get the option to set these properties.
The properties have a Category attribute and the contols themselves inherit from UserControl.
Is there something that I need to do to this controls in order to view and set the properties in 5.2?
Any help much appreciated
Thanks for your response Steve. I've attached a couple of screen shots of the production site (v3.6) and of the new test site (v5,2). I've also included a snipit of the code behind for the control.
I thought maybe I needed to register the control in the web.config, but it is not in the config for the v3.6 site, so not sure if I'm on the right track there.
Do me a quick favour...in your 5.x settings click the A-Z icon at the top left, just doublecheck and make sure it's not in there somewhere just perhaps not in the assigned category.
Then try making a new test property
public string TestProperty get;set; build, then go back into the editor and see if that one shows up
Checked again and the properties aren't there.
I added the new property but that doesn't show up either.
I've created a new user control to test as well, but I'm unsure what widget I need to drag onto the page to set up a custom control. Are you able to tell me which it is?
