I'm currently have a delegate control as such;

<SharePoint:DelegateControl runat="server" ControlId="MainNavigation" AllowMultipleControls="true">

I also have a feature which has a element manifest file containing:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="">
    <Control Id="MainNavigation" Sequence="100" ControlSrc="~/_controltemplates/MainNavigation.ascx">
        <Property Name="Theme"></Property>

Whenever I try to update the delegatecontrol to set the "Theme" property an error is raised. I tried using:

<SharePoint:DelegateControl runat="server" ControlId="MainNavigation" AllowMultipleControls="true">

Am I missing something?

I havent used properties in delegates in a long time, but dont you need to set the value in your control?

<Property Name="Theme">MyValue</Property>

Hi Anders, I also tried this but the control property was not set when testing. – Brian Scott Feb 10 '11 at 16:48
