Default Interating a Page's Control collection

I am wondering if anyone knows how to iterate through all the controls on a page. I have tried going through the Page.Controls collection but the only control that shows up is the MasterPage control. I am new to .net 2 but have been using 1.1 for quite a while and know that it can be done in 1.1. The differences here are that I am using inline code instead of code behind and I am using a Master Page. My goal is to iterate a forms TextBox controls and store the values in my db.

Thanks in advance

Answering my own question...

I found that with the master pages the controls are buries really deep. The Page contains 1 MasterPage control, which contains 4 additional controls, one of which is the Form control, which contains the Content Placeholder control which contains the elements I was looking for.

Here's my code:

Dim formControls As ControlCollection = Page.Controls(0).Controls(3).Controls(1).Controls
'page . master page . form . content . control collection

For Each control As Control In formControls
   'Do stuff

Makes perfect sense and now I understand how Page's are organized.

Happy Coding.
