if you are using VS 2005 then you dont need to put definition yourself
like this
 protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Panel pnlDescription;
but in VS 2003 (1.1) you need that.

If you have put panels on a form and in form load they are set to visible=false or at the time of adding to form their visible porperty is set of false then you will not be able to access then in code for further use because controls with visible=false are not rendered in resultant HTML page (HTML is not genereated for them).

you may use a style sheet to set visibility false and true .. hope that would work for you.
