please refer the below code ...

private TextBox GetTextBox()
        {
            TextBox txtPasskey = new TextBox();
            txtPasskey.Name = "txtPasskey";
            txtPasskey.MaxLength = 8;
            txtPasskey.PasswordChar = '*';
            txtPasskey.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
            txtPasskey.Location = new Point(200, 200);
            txtPasskey.TextChanged += new EventHandler(this.txtPasskey_TextChanged);
            txtPasskey.Validating += new CancelEventHandler(this.txtPasskey_Validating);
            return txtPasskey;
        }

Why wouldn't you use LINQ ? If you really not want to do that, you'll need to implement a loop over all your controls

Example without linq

foreach (Control con in mainForm.Controls)
    {
        if ( control is Textbox  && control.Name = ""YourTextBox")
                 // now you have your textbox
    }

You can also use the Old Way ;-)

TextBox MyTextBox = control.FindControl("YourTextBox") as TextBox;

For WinForms, it would be similar:
string CtlName = "txtPasskey";
            Control[] matches = this.Controls.Find(CtlName, true);
            if (matches.Length > 0)
            {
                // ... do something with matches[0] ...
                if (matches[0] is TextBox)
                {
                    TextBox tb = (TextBox)matches[0];
                    tb.Text = "You found me!";
                }
            }
