I can do the following to change the value of  an HTML textbox from C#:

<input type="text" name="email" id="myTextBox" runat="server" />
myTextBox.Text = "abc";

But, if the HTML controls are created through javascript, and if I have set runat="server", how can I achieve the above?

Basically, I am creating a seeries of textboxes using a for loop in javascript. Now, I want set their values using HTML.

You can not do this. You need to set the values only through javascript
