I'm building this website that has A LOT of labels and textboxes. I'm wondering if there is a way to set properties for dynamically added controls.

Example of what I'm trying to say:
Dim label1 as New Label
Dim label2 as New Label
Dim label3 as New Label

With label1, label2, label
      .Font.Name = "Arial"
      .Font.Size = 9
      .ForeColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#333333")
      .Font.Underline = True
End With

label1.ID = "lbl1"
label1.ID = "lbl2"
label1.ID = "lbl3"

You can set a cssclass like so:

when your dynamically creating them do

TextBox[numhere].CssClass = "Test"
