Using controls as property of a custom control - ASP.NET Building Controls

Hi, I have created a web custom control. I want to be able to select one of the other controls on my form as one the properties of my custom control. Similar to validation control's ControlToValidate property. How can I do this? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Tulga...
