And the same thing happens when you run route test under MS.

Your error is that you're using 'Src' in:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="TestUserControl"
Src="Controls/TestUserControl.ascx" %>

When you do that, you won't get the behavior you expect, as
TestUserControl.ascx.cs will not be used at all. If you want to kee that
@Register in the page as it is, you should include most of
TestUserControl.ascx.cs inside a '<script runat="server">' in
TestUserControl.ascx. I'm attaching this one.

The other options that you might use is to have the .ascx use 'Inherit'
instead of 'Src' and have the current TestUserControl.ascx.cs compiled
into a dll that would be in the 'bin' directory.

                        HyperLink1.Text = "Again";

                        this.Load += new
