You will need to be careful where you use the findControl though. If you are using it in Page_Load expect difficulties as the control may not have been created yet. I had this problem once and I had to force the control to load before using findControl. Just FYI.

you can use oops concept...first find header in your page and then find its controls
Page.FindControl("controlname")
