Hi,

I don't think the above article is what You are after. The concept of creating webparts / webzones from code behind is as follows:

1. You need to instantiate a WebPartManager either declaratively in your markup or in code behind:

Dim partManager As New WebParts.WebPartManager()
partManager.Personalization.Enabled = True
...

2. Put things in design mode:

Dim mode As WebParts.WebPartDisplayMode = partManager.SupportedDisplayModes("Design")
partManager.DisplayMode = mode
...

3. Add zones and parts according to some logic:

Dim numZones As Integer = CInt(Session("numWebZones"))
Dim numParts As Integer = CInt(Session("numWebParts"))
Dim i As Integer = 0
Dim j As Integer = 0

Do While i < numZones
    Dim zone As New WebParts.WebPartZone()
    zone.ID = "WebPartZone" & i.ToString()
    Do While j < numParts
        Dim literal As New LiteralControl("This is webpart " & j.ToString() & " in zone " & i.ToString() & ".")
        literal.ID = "WebPart" & i.ToString() & j.ToString()
        partManager.AddWebPart(partManager.CreateWebPart(literal), zone, j)
        j += 1
    Loop
    j = 0
    phZones.Controls.Add(zone)
    i += 1
Loop

4. Enjoy!

/Carl.
