i've got this code to create control at runtime..
the problem is that i've forgotten the link and i can't refer to its documentation....
the problem is...i don't understand this line:
Dim parent As String = CStr(ds.Tables(1).Rows(0)("Parent"))

what does this parent refer to?

Dim options As New RadioButtonList
For Each row As DataRow In ds.Tables(0).Rows
Dim item As New ListItem
item.Text = CStr(row("Name"))
item.Value = CStr(row("Id"))
options.Items.Add(item)
Next
Dim parent As String = CStr(ds.Tables(1).Rows(0)("Parent"))
Select Case parent
Case "sideNav"
columnSidenav.Controls.Add(options)
Case "footer"
footerCoontainer.Controls.add(options)
Case Else
paceholderDefault.Controls.add(options)
End Select

"parent" is the column name in that specific context, the line is going to return the 1st row parent column value to "string var"
