asp.net + Cycle through Dropdownlist

I have 11 dropdownlist that are all populated with the same data, i want to loop through each one to populate instead of listing each one at a time.

they are simply named drp1 through drp11

i have a function to populate them and call it with

populateDropDown("drp1") i enter the dropdownlist and it populates, so instead of entering 11 lines of code is there a way to loop 1 to 11 and dynamically change the dropdownlist name to send to the function

VB.NET example:

    For Index As Integer = 1 To 11
      Dim ddl As DropDownList = Me.FindControl("drp" & Index)
      ddl.DataSource = Me.DataSet1.Tables(0)
      ddl.DataBind()
    Next
