Placeholder's controls disappear during postback

Hi, I have a PlaceHolder on a place, to which I add a DropDownList (using
myPlaceHolder.C ontrols.Add(ddl ). The user selects something from the
DropDownList and posts the page.

Now I try to get the value of what the user selected but the PlaceHolder's
Controls collection is empty. I've tried turning viewstate of the PlaceHolder
on and off but it doesn't make a difference (and I think I should be able to
leave it off).

What could be causing the PlaceHolder's controls to disappear? Shouldn't
they be carried with the form post?

Thanks.

If you are setting them up in your Page_Load based on certain events, you may
simply not be setting them up when it is a postback. If so, refactor to avoid
having them reset with postback.

Hi all I'm trying ing to create usercontrols dynamically and add them into a placeholder. During a postback i got the following error " Failed to load viewstate. The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request. For example, when adding controls dynamically, the controls added during a post-back must match the type and position of the controls...

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...

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've asked this question before, but still haven't solved it, so am asking again. I am programmatically adding a user control to the page in response to a button click. The user control consists of three dropdowns and seven text boxes. When the button is clicked, I add another control to the page in Click event of the button and populate the three dropdowns. The text boxes are to be populated by the user.

Hi, The funniest part of the problem described here is that I am not new to ASP.NET, but honestly here I have no idea about what's going on. I have a GridView with a data source that just returns 1 row of only 1 column. The GridView has only one field, a TemplateField. In GridView.RowCreated, I create a TextBox under a PlaceHolder statically
