Add a PlaceHolder Web server control to your page when you want to dynamically add, remove, or loop through controls at run time.

To add a PlaceHolder control to a Web Forms page

  • Type an <asp:PlaceHolder> element into the page. For syntax, see PlaceHolder Web Server Control.

To add child controls to a PlaceHolder control at run time

  1. Create an instance of the control you want to add to the PlaceHolder control.

  2. Call the Add of the PlaceHolder control's Controls collection, passing it the instance you created.

    The following example shows how to add two Button controls as children of a PlaceHolder control. The code also adds a Literal control in order to add a br tag between the buttons.
