I'm attempting to access a Page control and keep getting the ole "object instance error".

Q. How can I code this to work?

Page page = HttpContext.Current.Handler as Page;
Control ctl = page.FindControl("divError") as Control;
ctl.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<div style='color: red;'>" + ex.ToString() + "</div>"));

if the control in the same page then just call the control id and set the property

if the control in another page for example it is in your master page then use this


 Dim x As LinkButton = Me.Page.Master.FindControl("lnkHome")

where linkbutton is the type of your control(it might be a textbox , label ...etc)

Are you saying that having the code inside a static method doesn't matter?
