How do I properly recurse all of the controls in a User Control (.ascx)?

here is my attempt:

  private Control FindNestedControl(ControlCollection c, string typeasstring, bool value)
        {
            Control tempControl = null;

            foreach (Control cc in c)
            {
                string contype = cc.GetType().ToString();
                if (contype == typeasstring)
                {
                    ((System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox)cc).BorderWidth = 0;
                    ((System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox)cc).ReadOnly = value;
                    ((System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox)cc).Enabled = !value;
                    tempControl = FindNestedControl(cc.Controls, typeasstring, value);
                }
            }

            return tempControl;
            
        }

Open in new window





My intent is to loop through all the controls and make the textbox controls read only.

Refer below snippet. Please correct the error if any while using the below code in your application.

MyUserControl u = Page.FindControl("MyUserControl1") as MyUserControl;

foreach (Control ctrl in u.Controls)

     {

          if (ctrl is TextBox)

          {

              ((TextBox)(ctrl)).Enabled = false;

          }

         
     }
