I'm pretty new to C# and am looking to do something I've done in VB.NET in the past.  Rather than name a dozen or so text boxes by name to, say, clear them; I would iterate through all the controls on the form, check their type via the TypeOf() method.  If the type were TextBox, I woul cast the generic object into a textbox and clear the box.  I'm looking to do the same in C#, b\uat can't quite find the method I need to properly check the type of the control.  Can someone show me the code for this with a small example?
