Default Dynamically displaying textboxes and label

How to display textboxes and labels inside the table dynamically in C#.
I have to pass the textbox id and text in the stored procedure for storing into the database.
I written like this :

TextBox TempTextBox = (TextBox)PlaceHolder1.FindControl("textBox1");

With the help of this initialisation, I am unable to pass the text box value and id and I dont know how to display inside the table.
I hope this time I ll get my answer.

I'm not too clear about what you're asking. Say you have a table with the ID myTable, a row with the ID myTableRow, and a cell myTableCell, and on some event you want to create a textbox with a value and an id, here's how you would do it:

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
  //I assume you're getting your values correctly from SQL
  // also assuming that you've passed your values into variables
  // which i'll name myTextBoxID and myTextBoxValue

  //Create a textbox control

  TextBox _tb = new TextBox();

  //Set the id of the textbox

  _tb.ID = myTextBoxID;

  //Set the value of the textbox

  _tb.Text = myTextBoxValue;

  //Add the control to your table cell



Now I put the code to build the textbox in the page_load event handler, but you would probably make it a separate function call. Also, remember that dynamic content must be built every time you post the page; for some reason it disappears on postback if you don't call it again.

Also, it is very easy to create Tables, rows, and cells dynamically, and if you need the code to do this as well, please send me an email. I hope this helps.
