It is hard to say what is causing the described issue without having the running application and reproduce the issue. I assume that the issue is caused by messing up the css styles. Could you please send us a simple runnable example which demonstrating the unwanted behavior or post your user control declaration code with the css styles related to it. Thus I will be able to gather more details about your scenario and if it is possible to provide you a solution.
