Default Dynamic Form Element Creation (ASP.NET)

I have to imagine this can be done with ASP.NET, but I'm wondering how to create dynamic input elements on the web form at runtime. The application I am trying to get to is the quantity box for a shopping cart. As the user ads items to the shopping cart more quantity input boxes need to appear on the form. I can do this by writing plain HTML elements to the form and then checking those elements on postback, but I'm wondering if there's a ".NET way" of doing this.

Yes there is a way. Make sure you put this code in the page_init event of the page. This is just a simple example:

Dim tb as New TextBox
tb.ID = "MyID"
..set any other properties here...
Me.FindControl("Form1").Controls.Add(tb)
