How do I keep controls in usercontrol unique so that they do not interfere with each other on same form.

I have a countdown label for a multiline textbox within a usercontrol and want to have two of them on my form.

The problem is when I enter text into one box the counter on the other is being changed because the id of the labels must be the same in each instance of the usercontrol.

Would be grateful for some ideas round this one.

How are you performing the update to the label?

If you do UserControl1.FindControl("theTextbox") you should only ever get that instance's textbox back.

Set a var for each textbox
use the UserControl's instantation (eg: Control1 vs Control2) to find the textbox in question, and you can then update independantly.
