Postback on Controls added to placeholder

I have added controls to the placeholder control. All the controls that were added have EnableViewState = true including the placeholder. One of the controls has a button that performs a postback. My question is when the button is clicked and a postback is performed, the controls that were in the placeholder no longer appears on the screen! Am I doing something wrong here? Why are the controls back on the screen eventhough they have enable view state

I am doing this rather than creating a Composite control for certain reasons. I just would like to know why adding controls in code to the placeholder no longer appears when a postback is performed

Thanks....

You have to recreate the controls when the page posts back.

Enabling viewstate will enable the controls to wire themselves back up when
they are added to the control tree again. If you set any of the properties
of the child controls before adding them to the placeholder, you will need
to set them up again before adding to placeholder. If you added the
controls to the placeholder before changing any of the properties, the set
values will appear simply by adding the control with the same ID to the
placeholder on your postback. Then any events will fire such as button
clicks, or text changed events.

HTH,

I'm adding several controls (labels, etc.) to a placeholder programatically. I'd like the PlaceHolder to maintain these contents during postbacks without having to programmatically recreate their contents. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance. Mark

I have created several grids dynamically and have added them to different HTML placeholders on a vb.net web form. The grids and controls within them come up and view beautifully when the web page first starts, but when I click on a button, and the page comes back, my dynamically created grid and controls are not visible. Any thoughts? Please view my sample code below. If Not ispostback then creategrids end if

I've got a page which loads up a different user control into a placeholder control every time a button is clicked on the parent page. I use a statement like Me.plcTabViews.Controls.Add(LoadControl("test.ascx")). There are up to 30 possibilities which are decided by CASE statements and keeps one from loading up onto another. However, I'm running into a unique error... Failed to load viewstate. The control tree into which viewstate is...

Hi all I need to create datagris dynamically in C# code. I placed a PlaceHolder object on my form and then as Datagrids are created, they are added to the PlaceHolder.

Group, I'm using Visual Studio 2003 to create an ASP.NET 1.1 project which contains nested server user controls in order to create a tree-like hierarchy. The tree is a sort of question and answer dialog. The user answers a question, and the next subquestion appears (using dynamic html display:none|block) depending on his answer.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
