try this,

<div id="dynamicDiv" runat="server" style="border:solid 1px #dcdcdc"></div>


dynamicDiv.Style.Add("height", "height of placeholder")

Well if your normale css is fine then you just do the following:

#1, if the div is in the placeholder: give it height and width 100%.
#2, if the placeholder is in the div: do nothing.

#1, Depending how you want it the div can take the height and with of the parent container which would be an placeholder here.

#2, If the placeholder is inside the div then it will automatically extend the size of the div around it since that div has a height which by default extend.

Specify NO height, only a width.   The DIV will expand to fill the content going into it, so your problem is solved because the content controls the height of the DIV.  If there is a containing DIV, leave the height of that unspecified too.
