How get value from a dynamically created control in a user control


I am working with a version of IBuySpy. On one page is a form that contains a user control that lists the items the user purchased, the subtotal, shipping, etc. I wanted to add a DropDownList from which the user could select the shipper. The dropdown list works fine as long as it has .AutoPostBack = false. However, I cannot figure out how to get the value that the user selected when they finally press the submit button on the form.
All attempts to locate the control and it's value have failed. I tried drillingdown from the form to the child controls, and sub child controls. No where in this try can I find my dynamically created DropDownList. I am starting to suspect that unless you have .AutoPostBack = true and an event handler that the value of a dynamically created control is lost when the form is submitted. Can anyone veryify that this is the case.
If it is the case, how can you get this value? The reason I had to set .AutoPostBack =false is because also on the user control was grid and it was in the footer of the grid is where my control is created. I suppose I could gut the control and put my controls outside the grid, but I thoi\ught I would see if there was an easier way.

You can use Control.FindControl to find named sub control in your control.

Check this sample Accessing Control's Value from DataGrid in ASP.NET
OR You can expose public property of usercontrol pass value to parent.
Check this Extracting Child UserControl's value

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="Test" TagName="MyControl" Src="ExtractingSUBControlsvalue.ascx" %>
<script runat="server">
void btnClick(Object sender,EventArgs e)
result.Text = "Name: " + TestControl1.SelectedUserName + "<br />";
result.Text += "ID: " + TestControl1.SelectedUserID ;
<head runat="server">
<title>Extracting Child UserControl's value</title>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<p>Following example shows how you can access values from
Child UserControl using public property in user control.
<p style="border:solid 1px;padding: 5px;">
<Test:MyControl id="TestControl1" runat="server"/>
<asp:Button Runat="server" onclick="btnClick" Text="Get UserControl Data"/>
<asp:Label ID="result" Runat=Server></asp:Label>
<%@ Control Language="C#" %>
<%@ import Namespace="System.Collections" %>
<script runat="server">
public String SelectedUserName {get { return UserList.SelectedItem.Text; }}
public String SelectedUserID { get { return UserList.SelectedItem.Value; }}

This is UserContorl.
<br />
<asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="UserList">
<asp:ListItem Value="1">Tom Sawyer</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="2">Huckleberry Finn</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="3">Robinson Crusoe</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="4">William Tell</asp:ListItem>
