How do I use this?

I included this class in my project, but I can't work out how to reference a Public.Html.Controls.Button rather than a System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button inside my .ascx file - asp:button always seems to create a System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Page.IsValid cannot be called before validation has taken place. It should be queried in the event handler for a control that has CausesValidation=True and initiated the postback, or after a call to Page.Validate.
