    I am having problems after adding dynamic controls in a custom web control.
    I have no problem adding the controls. However in the example below, when
    someone clicks on the button, the data in the previous textbox is gone. Is
    there any way I can get this data to persist?

    <ToolboxData("<{0}:TestWebControl runat=server></{0}:TestWebControl>")> _
    Public Class TestWebControl
    Inherits WebControl
    Implements INamingContainer
    Private btnAdd As New Button

    Public Sub New()
    AddHandler btnAdd.Click, AddressOf btnSubmit_Click
    End Sub

    Protected Overrides Sub CreateChildControls()
    btnAdd.ID = "btnAdd"
    btnAdd.Text = "Add Box"
    If numBoxes = 0 Then numBoxes = 1
    For i As Integer = 1 To numBoxes
    Dim myTextBox As New TextBox()
    myTextBox.ID = "myTextBox" & i
    myTextBox.Width = 200
    Controls.Add(New LiteralControl("<br>"))
    Controls.Add(New LiteralControl("<br>"))
    End Sub
    Protected Sub btnSubmit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
    numBoxes = numBoxes + 1
    Me.ChildControlsCreated = False
    End Sub
    Public Property numBoxes() As Integer
    Return ViewState("numBoxes")
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As Integer)
    ViewState("numBoxes") = value
    End Set
    End Property
    End Class

    Thanks in advance
