Finding control type in ASP .NET if you only know the control name

How can you find a control's type in ASP .NET (using C#, in Page_Load
function) if you only know the control's name?

Hey Joachim

If I understand you correctly you want to know the type of a control given
its name.

Given the contril is called Button2, You could try this:

string typeName = Page.FindContro l("Button2").Ge tType().Name;

This will return "Button"

Hope that helps
