Web Custom Control - Design Time Properties

Hi all -

I've created a web custom control and associated custom designer and, for various reasons, need to programmatically assign the ID property the control gets when it's dropped onto a web form in the designer.  

The very frustrating thing is that I can set the ID value listed in the Properties pane and the ID property reported by the control at run time, but can NOT assign the ID value generated in HTML Design view or in the "Web Form Designer Generated Code" region of the page code behind (I get, for example, MyCustomControl1).  I've tried overriding the ID property in the custom designer to no avail.  Two stars to anyone that can help!
