I'm trying to look through some controls which are dynamically created on my webpage, the creating code is this:

For Each row As DataRow In ds.Tables("Questions").Rows
                Dim lbl As Label = New Label()
                lbl.ID = i
                lbl.Style("margin-top") = i
                lbl.Style("margin-left") = "10px"
                lbl.Style("width") = "200px"
                lbl.SkinID = "question"
                lbl.Style("padding-top") = "20px"
                lbl.Style("padding-bottom") = "10px"

                Dim question As String = row("questionText").ToString
                lbl.Text = Convert.ToString(x) & ": " & question

                If row("questiontype") = 37 Then
                    Dim img As Image = New Image()
                    Dim test As String = Server.MapPath("~/secure/images/aqimages/" & row("questionImageFilename").ToString)
                    img.ImageUrl = Server.MapPath("~/secure/images/aqimages/" & row("questionImageFilename").ToString)
                    img.Width = 700
                    img.Height = 300
                End If

                Dim childRows As DataRow() = row.GetChildRows(relation)

                For Each childRow As DataRow In childRows
                    Dim rbl As CheckBoxList = New CheckBoxList()

                    rbl.ID = "qid" & row("questionid").ToString
                    rbl.SkinID = "checkboxlist"
                    Dim tPos As Integer = 60 * (i + 1)
                    rbl.Style("margin-top") = i + 20
                    rbl.Style("margin-left") = "50px"
                x = x + 1

However, if I look through the controls:

For Each ctrl As Control In Form.Controls
            System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("Control " & ctrl.UniqueID & vbCrLf)

All I get back is this:

Control ctl00$ctl07

Control ctl00$lblWelcomeMessage

Control ctl00$ctl08

Control ctl00$imgJCBLogo

Control ctl00$ctl09

Control ctl00$mainMenu

Control ctl00$ctl10

Control ctl00$smpMain

Control ctl00$ctl11

Control ctl00$cphNew2ColMain

Control ctl00$ctl12

Control ctl00$cphNew2ColRight

Control ctl00$ctl13

Control ctl00$lblVersionInfo

Control ctl00$ctl14

Control ctl00$lblCopyright

Control ctl00$ctl15

Control ctl00$hplPrivacy

Control ctl00$ctl16

Control ctl00$hplDPA

Control ctl00$ctl17

Control ctl00$lnbRemoveLoginCookies

Control ctl00$ctl18

Control ctl00$cookies

Control ctl00$ctl19

It looks like it is just containing the dynamic control within the master page and not parsing them. How can I get the ID's of these dynamically created controls?
