Try this instead.

For Each objControl In Controls

If TypeOf (objControl) Is TextBox Then

objControl.Text = "Yippee!"

' or, something useful

End If

Hope this helps.

Hi A,

It looks the same as from Peter, however this does as well the controls in
by intance a panel. When you do not have those take the one from Peter.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVa l sender As Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArg s) Handles MyBase.Load
End Sub
Private Sub doYippy(ByVal parentCtr As Control)
Dim ctr As Control
For Each ctr In parentCtr.Contr ols
If TypeOf ctr Is TextBox Then
ctr.Text = "Yippy"
End If
End Sub
I hope this helps?

Hello, I'd like to iterate through each Page of my ASP.NET project from within a Custom web control and access the Page.Controls collection. I've tried using Reflection on the web project assembly, but the controls collection count was zero. While this method gives details of the private controls in each page, I need access to actual instances of the controls to interrogate their individual properties.

Let's say I rendered a bunch of controls with the same name and different IDs. On postback, can I somehow iterate through these controls (checkboxes in this case, but could be dropdown controls in the future) and get their values and IDs with all this done in the code behind page? A small example would be appreciated. Thanks, Oleg
