I find myself using both types all the time. What does everyone else prefer to use and why ?
I like Text because I can use Macro's and intellisense feature and I like acsx for the inline c# I can use when needed.
yes both models are great. This depends on developer. We have 2 teams PortalEngine (FrontEnd) and .NET (BackEnd). So for PortalEngine guys it is hard to write C#, but they are great at understanding macros.
Personally I prefer ASCX.. :)
I agree with Petar, both work great for what you know, I'm a C# dev so I perfer ASCX as well. Also, from a performance standpoint, there is no difference.
My vote would be for ASCX. Coming form a C# background it makes hte most sense to me. I have used the others when I need to pull in macros, but more often than not I'm using ASCX and adding in controls.
macros on Text are great, but using .ASCX / c#, you really can do anything you want.
