This ebook does what it says. Clearly and concisely shows you how to build dynamic controls that retain value after postback (and retrieve their values). The author actually explains 2 different methods. I bought this ebook after having no luck finding an online tutorial that I could get working in my application. Probably the most valuable 33 pages I have ever bought.

One caveat....the example is only for the server side controls that come with ASP.NET
The examples are NOT for use with custom user controls (.ascx) and the examples DO NOT illustrate how to sign-up for custom events that the user controls (.ascx) might raise at runtime.
The examples given are ONLY for ensuring that simple controls that are loaded at runtime do not disappear after a postback, and that their viewstate remains as it was (in other words, ensuring that selections from the dropdownlist or text entered into the textbox will not disappear). If that is your goal, then this short treatment is excellent for you.
I have yet to find any books or articles that give the topic of USER CONTROL survivability in ASP.NET decent treatment. Sigh. Such a book would explain about event wiring to controls loaded at runtime and how to preserve THAT across postbacks. It would include some discussion on Reflection, MethodInfo, EventInfo, collections of events exposed through reflection (and how to wire them up), etc.
