In my sample i wanted to create another placeholder with the same objects in it and place it in a different part of the page but for some reasons i could not just say phMyLinks=phMyLinks2 . I also tried to populate both placeholders at run time but it was populating only one of them. One way was to explicitely create another LinkButton and to make all actions parallel to both placeholders. I am looking to find an easier solution whereas i could populate both placeholders altogether .
Label lblPage=new Label();
lblPage.Text="Page : ";
myLink.Text=" " + Convert.ToString(i) + " ";
phMyLinks.Controls.Add(myLink); //this becomes empty
