Reference value of dynamic control in VB ASP.NET

I have an ASP.NET web page that dynamically creates a table with 3 columns and a variable number of rows.

Col 1 contains a checkbox - chkx
Col 2 contains a textbox - txtx
Col 3 contains a label - lblx

where x is a number based on how many times we've ran round the loop.

All the above are created dynamically during the page init event and are givin an ID at run-time. (code snipit below)

Everything works fine, however, when I click one of the checkboxes I need to get the value in the coresponding textbox & label

i.e. when I click chk1, then I need the value in txt1 & lbl1, but as the controls are dynamic, the code behind doesn't recognise the ID of the control, so... txt1.Text fails validation..

So how do I reference the control's value
Dim nCheckBox As CheckBox = New CheckBox()
nCheckBox.Checked = False
nCheckBox.EnableViewState = True
nCheckBox.ID = "chk" & counter
nCheckBox.AutoPostBack = True

AddHandler nCheckBox.CheckedChanged, AddressOf CheckBox1_CheckedChanged

Open in new window

thanks,

but I find that hard to follow as it's C# and I'm not familiar with that, I'm using VB

It looks like I have to iterate through all the dynamic control to see if it's a checkbox, then if it's a checkbox and it's checked I still don't see how to get the value from the textbox that's in the adjacent cell of the same row?

Try using the FindControl method of the container. The container would be the page if the controls are directly added to page or a form or a panel or a grid etc. So you can use

CType(Page.FindControl("txt1"), TextBox).Text
