Anybody a suggestion how I get my Visual Studio project for a module to correctly find the DNN form controls? The .ascx files have references to the DNN controls, e.g. DNN:Label,

<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="Label" Src="~/controls/LabelControl.ascx" %>

But the Src cannot be found by Visual Studio, the reference expands to a controls folder under the module folder in stead of referencing it to the root of the site. The Src has a red wiggle underline and dsiplays as en error.

I followed the suggestion made by Mitch Sellers much earlier (http://mitchelsellers.com/blogs/2009/...) and afair this solved it previously, but now the missing reference is still there (again).

There was a change in VS that has modified the behavior, I don't care about the actual "visual" aspect of it, so I typically just leave them and all is good as I don't interact with the controls in code. However, if you need to interact with them in code, just define the items as protected in the code behind. I haven't spent the time to research a "true" solution for this.
