public static Control FindControlRecursive(Control root, string id)
    if (root.ID == id)
        return root;
    return root.Controls.Cast<Control>()
       .Select(c => FindControlRecursive(c, id))
       .FirstOrDefault(c => c != null);

    Hi Goti,

    Each control has a Controls property which in fact is a ControlCollection. This collection itself has a method Find() which takes 2 parameters. The first parameter is the name of the control which you want to find, the second parameter indicates wether to include all children into the search.

    As a sample:

    Control[] allButton1 = this.Controls.Find("button1", true);
    // for your example
    Control[] foundControls = this.Controls.Find(root.Name,true);
