Find a control dynamically added to a page

sijo 2 asked:

Open original thread
In a content page i have added some linkbuttons. the number of linkbuttons varies depending on the data in the page. data is not in grid or any other data-controls.
i need to access the linkbutton which user clicks.
i used the following code ,

int PageNumber = Convert.ToInt16(e.CommandArgument.ToString());
            string str = e.CommandName;
            LinkButton lbl = (LinkButton)FindControl(str);
            lbl.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen;
            lbl.Font.Bold = true;

CommandName and id is also same.
CommandName is correctly received but the control could not be found.

Please suggest a solution
