Compact >> Inherits textbox acts differently then .NET 1.1

I have a windows application that I have a class setup as:

Public Class cMyTextBox
Inherits Textbox

Sub New()
MyBase.New()
End Sub
End Class

Then, anytime in my program I use a text box I use the class cMyTextbox
instead of System.Windows.Forms.Textbox. Works great.

But, when I try to do the same thing in the compact framework, it
compiles fine while looking at the source, but when I click to look at
the actual form I get:

The variable 'TextBox1' is either undelcared or was never assigned.
Specificed cast is not valid.

When I go back and look at the source, it looks fine and still compiles
fine.

Any ideas.

Compact >> Inherits textbox acts differently then .NET 1.1 Visual inheritance is not supported in CF. Only custom controls for which
you have created a design-time counterpart will display properly in designer
