    Thanks for your time.

    I've created a web user control that has some properties available. I'm
    able to add the control dynamically (at run time) with no
    problem([placeholder].controls.add([control]). Is it possible to set
    property values of a dynamically added web user control at run time? Can you
    provide a link or code snippet?

    I can do it for a typical web control (textbox, label, etc), but I can't
    figure out how to do it for a web user control(ascx file type).

    Thanks

    Yes you can, but you'll need to downcast the variable once you've called
    LoadControl.

    UserControl uc = LoadControl("foo.ascx");
    MyUC myuc = uc as MyUC;
    if (myuc != null)
    {
    myuc.MyProp = 5; // etc...
    }
