    Every control has a Controls property that returns all the child controls. You can access all the controls on a page by iterating over the Page.Controls property and then these controls' child controls and so on.

    Hopefully you are using VS, as I do not know how to do this in Web Matrix. Go to View -> Class view. In the toolbar that opens, navigate to your page. You will find a list of all the asp.net controls there. You can select them all and copy their id's from here. I do not know if you can also get what controls they are, but at least you can get theit id's.

    I know, old question. But I'm going to leave this here since it comes up in searches:

    Gets a comma separated string of all the control IDs on a web form:

    protected void FindControls()
            System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
            // form1.Controls
            foreach (Control c in form1.Controls) //Page.Controls
                String txtId = string.Empty;
                if (c.GetType().Namespace == "System.Web.UI.WebControls")
                    txtId = c.ID;
                    sb.Append(txtId + ", ");                
            string cntrlList = sb.ToString();
