You have to provide name attribute for it:

 <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

Hi, use this code

//On Button Click
TextBox txt = new TextBox();
txt.Name = "a1" + i.ToString();

txt.Location = new Point(367, y);
txt.Size = new Size(127, 20);
TextBox txt1 = new TextBox();
txt1.Name = "a2" + i.ToString();

txt1.Location = new Point(520, y);
txt1.Size = new Size(59,20);

TextBox txt2 = new TextBox();
txt2.Name = "a3" + i.ToString();

txt2.Location = new Point(602, y);
txt2.Size = new Size(59,20);
y += 25;

//To Retrive TexBoxes

for(int p=0; p
foreach (Control tempc in panel2.Controls)
if(tempc is TextBox)
if (tempc.Name == "a1"+ p.ToString())
medicine = tempc.Text;
else if (tempc.Name == "a2" +p.ToString())
time = tempc.Text;
else if (tempc.Name == "a3" + p.ToString())
day = tempc.Text;
obj.insertdata("INSERT INTO.... ");
