If i understand correctly, u need all the things that lie in ur div tag from code behind.

For that, put the attributes runat= "server" and id="div1"

n in ur code behind u can try like, div1.Controls

I did this in my html:

<div id="header1" runat="server"</div>

and tried this in my code

div1.Controls

and it did not know what header1 was.
