I would like to make certain objects on the screen invisible on startup. I easily have a few hundred objects. Can I scroll through a collection of objects in my screen and set the properties of those that meet a naming criteria to be invisible?  (asp.net)

thanks

Yes. You'll need to use recursion because any given control can contain other controls.
protected void Page_Load( object sender, EventArgs e )

{

    HideControls( this.Controls );

}
 

public void HideControls( ControlCollection controls )

{

    foreach( Control control in controls )

    {

        if( control.HasControls() )

        {

            Initialize( control.Controls );

        }
 

        if( control.ID == "whatever" )

        {

            control.Visible = false;

        }

    }

}

This is the actual command. The above command does not return the controls on the page
For Each myControl In Me.Form.Controls
                                    myControl.imageurl = formula.BottomImage

Actually, the code I posted does return all the controls on the page. I know because I'm using it in an existing application.

The loop that was posted in the author's comment only returns the controls that are direct children of the page. If a control is inside another control (e.g. a panel) then the author's comment will not work correctly. Also, the author asked about hiding controls on a page, and setting the ImageUrl property does not do that.

I see that this user has a history of accepting his own solutions after other have stepped in to help. I will keep that in mind in the future.

with all due respect to craig, I accept over 90% of all solutions given to me because well over 90% of the solutions that people provide actually work. In all cases I actually assign points to the contributors.

I tested multiple methods prior to posting the question. CraigWarner's solution returned a collection of 5 items , and it is a solution that i tried prior to posting my question. My solution returns all 1500 objects that I have on the screen. Hence my solution is more complete. I am more then happy to give Craig points for his attempt. I was merely posting my solution so that it may help others with the same problem.
