web usercontrol not returning variable to aspx page asp.net

Hi Experts,

I'm currently writing an asp.net website and looking at user controls. I have managed to input variables into the usercontrol and display them but when I click the button on the usercontrol to return to the aspx page it does not feedback the output variable that i'm setting "MyResult" within the control. What am I doing wrong please. The code is: -

DynamicUsercontrol.aspx.cs :-
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace Testing
{
    public partial class DynamicUsercontrol : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        QuestionType1 ucSimpleControl = new QuestionType1();

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            //ucSimpleControl.MyResult = "test";
            lblReturn.Text = ucSimpleControl.MyResult;
        }


        protected void cmdAdd_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ucSimpleControl = LoadControl("~/QuestionType1.ascx") as QuestionType1;
            ucSimpleControl.QuestionText = "This is my Question";
            PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(ucSimpleControl);
        }
    }
}

You are adding your Usercontrol dynamically in to the page. You need to take care of re-adding it on every postback: Check this tutorial.

And you are assigning the lblText in the load of the Page but setting property value in the buttonclick of the UC. Click is called later in the cycle and your label text won't be sent to new value.
