Good morning,

I've searched the web for a week to find a solution to a problem, but I can't figure it out, so now I'll try to post directly what the problem is and hope that someone could explain me how to go ahead. I'm new to Asp.Net, and some years have passed since I used to programme in C/C++.

I have an aspx page with two "Controller" textboxes.
If you insert a number X in TB1, on the OnTextChanged event, a Placeholder is populated with X TextBoxes (the number you entered).
If you insert a number H in TB2, on the OnTextChanged event, a Placeholder2 is populated with H TextBoxes (the number you entered).

The problem is that each time you enter a number you have a postback, hence after the first time, you loose all the data and the TextBox Controls in the PlaceHolder already populated. I cannot use Ajax UPdatePanel, so I know I should save the user data with the viewstate or Session, but i don't have idea of how to recall them to repopulate the PlaceHolder after Postback.

Here is my code C#(I tried to leave just the interesting parts).

Solved with Javascript function on client side and a hidden field to pass the dynamic controls values to the server on postbacks.
Maybe not elegant, but it works.
