Referencing Dynamically added content

  Asked By: Bastet    Date: Mar 24    Category: Asp.net    Views: 762

I'm having this trouble referencing the type of control that I
render. Here is the code that i use to either add a ListBox or a
DropDownList to a place holder...

if (EventType == "VERSUS"){
DropDownList ddlOpponent = new DropDownList();
}else if (EventType == "MULTIPLE"){
ListBox ddlOpponent = new ListBox();
ddlOpponent.SelectionMode = ListSelectionMode.Multiple;

How could I then reference this control ddlOpponent and pass it to a
function that takes a list or dropdown to a method, such as the

Call: BindList(ddlOpponent);
Method: private void BindList(TextBox ddlOpponent){}

If I'm thinking of your problem correctly - you want to later (perhaps in
another function) - pull this dynamically  created control  out of the page's
bag-o-controls & use it. If this is on the right path, then you can use the
FindControl method  of the Control class...

Control myControl1 = FindControl("TextBox2");

Then you can use myControl1 just as you would use (in this example) the
original control, TextBox2
