Oh, Okay.

Then use a Panel.

Dim p as Panel
p.ID = "MyDiv";
p.Controls.Add(User Control);

me.Controls.Add(p)

Instead of creating a Div Control just create the HTML dynamically.

Dim myDiv as String
myDiv = "<div id='blah'>afjkhafja</div>"

Then bind that to a placeholder or label or Response.Write it

                strdiv = "<div id=" & "'div1'" & " style=" & "'Z-INDEX: 105; WIDTH: 100%; POSITION: absolute; HEIGHT: 100%'" & " runat=" & "'server'" & ">" & "</div>"

                Dim uc As UserControl
                Dim dv As New HtmlGenericControl
                uc = Page.LoadControl("UC.ascx")
                uc.Visible = True

sorry try this code.

Table1 is created in the design time itself.

Dim cell As New HtmlTableCell
                Dim strdiv As String
                cell = Table1.Rows(0).Cells(0)
                strdiv = "<div id=" & "'div1'" & " style=" & "'Z-INDEX: 105; WIDTH: 100%; POSITION: absolute; HEIGHT: 100%'" & " runat=" & "'server'" & ">" & "</div>"
                cell.InnerHtml = strdiv
                Dim uc As UserControl

                uc = Page.LoadControl("UC.ascx")
                uc.Visible = True
                Page.FindControl("div1").Controls.Add(uc)
