Create listbox at runtime c#

In the event LoadListBoxes(...);, I need code to create a few list boxes. The name of the listboxes are store in listBoxes object

Question: How can I complete the signature for this event and code it to create only those with Key = True?

   protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Dictionary<string, bool> listBoxes =   new Dictionary<string, bool>();
        listBoxes.Add("First_Name",true);
        listBoxes.Add("LastName", false);
        listBoxes.Add("City", true);
        if (!IsPostBack==false)
        {
        }
        else
        {
            LoadListBoxes(Dictionary<string, bool> listBoxes);
        }
    }
    private void LoadListBoxes(Dictionary<string, bool> listBoxes)
{
}
    {

Something like:
private void LoadListBoxes(Dictionary<string, bool> listBoxes)
{
	foreach (string box in (from listBox in listBoxes where listBox.Value select listBox.Key))
	{
		ListBox lb = new ListBox() { Name = box };
		// Do anything you want with the properties
		// Add the new listbox to your form or where ever.
	}
}

Could you please replace the following line

// Add the new listbox to your form or where ever.

to add these controls anywhere on the webform?

And also, possibly give me a link where I can learn a little about positioning my controls on the webform?

Thanks,

Mike

This is great. I was able to use the dynamic positioning successfully.

Could you please also take a look at another question nobody touching it:
