PlaceHolder Class

Stores dynamically added server controls on the Web page.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public class PlaceHolder : Control
public class PlaceHolder extends Control
public class PlaceHolder extends Control

Use the PlaceHolder control as a container to store server controls that are dynamically added to the Web page. The PlaceHolder control does not produce any visible output and is used only as a container for other controls on the Web page. You can use the Control.Controls collection to add, insert, or remove a control in the PlaceHolder control.

The following code example demonstrates how to dynamically add controls to the PlaceHolder control.


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>

<html>
<head>

   <script runat="server">

      void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      {
         HtmlButton myButton = new HtmlButton();

         myButton.InnerText = "Button 1";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);

         myButton = new HtmlButton();
         myButton.InnerText = "Button 2";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);

         myButton = new HtmlButton();
         myButton.InnerText = "Button 3";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);

         myButton = new HtmlButton();
         myButton.InnerText = "Button 4";
         PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(myButton);
      }

   </script>

</head>

<body>
   <form runat="server">
      <h3>PlaceHolder Example</h3>

      <asp:PlaceHolder id="PlaceHolder1" 
           runat="server"/>
   </form>
</body>
</html>
