Mixing static & dynamic content on the same page

Hi All,

I have a static ASPX page with some ASP edit boxes, labels, etc .. I now want to put some dynamicly generated data inbetween the components.

I have tried the follwing:

Create ASCX component which generates the dynamic data on it's Page_Load()
It uses the Response.Write() to generate the dynamic content. I do not use Response.End() here so that the whole page can complete


I then put the component onto my ASPX page between the components I want it to display ...

This does not work .. .

What id does is it generates the dynamic content on top of the page and then the rest of the page... eg:

<table> ... </table>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<HTML>
...

so obviously this messes up my whole layout ...

How can I specify the exact position of my dynamic code ...

Thanks
Peter

You can use PlaceHolder Control.  Keep the place holder where ever you want in the aspx. Then add your controls dynamically in the code behind.


Sample Code (from MSDN):
==================
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>
<html>
<head>
   <script runat="server">
      void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      {
         HtmlButton myButton = new HtmlButton();

         myButton.InnerText = "Button 1";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);

         myButton = new HtmlButton();
         myButton.InnerText = "Button 2";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);

         myButton = new HtmlButton();
         myButton.InnerText = "Button 3";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);

         myButton = new HtmlButton();
         myButton.InnerText = "Button 4";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);
      }
   </script>
</head>
<body>
   <form runat="server">
      <h3>PlaceHolder Example</h3>
      <asp:PlaceHolder id="PlaceHolder1"
           runat="server"/>
   </form>
</body>
</html>
