Of course you can. You do the rendering of your custom  control and you're
allowed to put  any tags and functionality inside of it. Probably it's best to
make some public property of type string scriptFolder that you enter to connect
to correct folder with the js file... I'd do it that way. But there may be
things I don't know behind this, that you know...

Well, yes, that's one side of the problem. But when the control  is for sale,
not just for internal use, it's better to set it all in one dll, and the
client-script can be written and in resource  files. Than I can embbed this
script string in my html output. But I got better performance when the
JavaScript file is separeted, and can be cashed at client  browser. So I was
wondering to somehow use resource files  to pack it all, but than on
run-time, make a separete .js and send  it to browser.

check for information about IE WebCOntrols which probably use same technique...
This way you'll maybe find useful info...

Change the property of the JS file to Embedded Resource.

Extract it with this.(add ref to System.Reflection)

Assembly asm = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
if (asm != null)
// create stream to the embedded file(change js file name to what suits
Stream stm = asm.GetManifestResourceStream(asm.GetName().Name + "." +
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(stm);
// read it in
string _clientScript = reader.ReadToEnd();
// clean up

_clientScript now contains the JS.

don't know if it helps but I've just done something similar(ish) ... I had a
class for a large jscript and simply wrote to a label.

namespace yournamespace{
using System;
public class JScript
private string str = "";

public JScript()
public string getjs()
str +="\n";
str +=" <SCRIPT language=\"javascript\">\n";
str +="<!--\n";
str +=" ......... blah blah blah\n";
str +="-->\n";
str +=" </SCRIPT>\n";
return str;


Label mylabel = new Label();
JScript myjs = new JScript()
mylabel.Text = myjs.getjs();

Not quite the same as what you want but it works ... and you can pass it
parameters if you wanted.
