SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The field inherits from a multi part field (its for our billing code). If I place on the page:

<td class="form-control">
  <srm:BillingCodeFieldControl ID="billingCode" runat="server" ControlMode="Edit"></srm:BillingCodeFieldControl>

It does not render at all.

I have debugged it and the custom Field Control method CreateChildControls is getting called, so I am confused.

It renders just fine if I go into the list view and select "Edit Item". I'm thinking that since I have no associated List item until I submit the form, and hence no associated Field that may be the issue...

Any ideas?

Does it render if you View the list item (not the edit view) –  Dave Wise Mar 6 '12 at 20:48
If I view the list item, it shows just the standard Display template that a multipart item shows, basically like a text field. If I then click edit item, the custom control template I defines shows up. –  wvalters Mar 7 '12 at 14:18
