Good placeholder example for database driven questionnaire

Does anyone know where I can find a good placeholder tutorial/project example?

I want to store a questionnaire in a database table, defining whether to use a radio, text field, combobox, etc., then loop through the table, building my form and displaying it on the page. Then retrieve the data from the form fields, and store back in the table.

Using VS2010, 4.0 framework. C# or VB.NET is fine.

Thanks!

I would use a repeater.

Each question would be a record in a table of possible questions.  Based on your query, you populate the repeater with information retrieved.

On submit, grab the value from the fields and put it back into the database.

A repeater template must repeat the same type of object: text field, radio button or combobox, etc.

Row one might be a text field and a combobox, row two might be a radio button, row three might be a text field only, and so on.

I don't think a repeater will allow that. I do know a placeholder will.

I found these snippets of code:

And for repeaters, I found this one on creating a repeater template programmatically:
