I have a placeholder object in which I am dynamically placing controls based on a database query. Of course during postback these controls go away. I have seen other questions posed where someone wants the dynamically created controls to appear on the page. However in my case I don't really need to have the control displayed after postback, but I do need its value. When I look at the trace output from the page after postback, it lists the value of my dynamically created controls, but I cannot figure how to reference those values. Does anyone have any ideas?
