    I'm building a custom layout control and have it working just fine except i'm getting an error when I drop more than 1 content block into a placeholder.

    I suspect I need to override something in my CustomControl to assign something a unique name, but not sure what. 

    My Custom Control code:
    01.public class WebCustomControl1 : LayoutControl
    02.    {
    03.        /// <summary>
    04.        /// CustomTemplate lets you supply a template.ascx file to render the layout.
    05.        /// </summary>
    06.        public string CustomTemplate = "SitefinityWebApp.LayoutControls.Layout1.ascx";
    08.        public override string Layout
    09.        {
    10.            get { return this.CustomTemplate; }
    11.            set { CustomTemplate = value; }
    12.        }
    14.        public override string AssemblyInfo
    15.        {
    16.            get { return GetType().ToString(); }
    17.            set { base.AssemblyInfo = value; }
    18.        }
    20.        protected override void CreateChildControls()
    21.        {
    22.            base.CreateChildControls();
    23.        }
    24.    }

    My ASCX file:
    <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <div class="trio first">
        <div id="div1" runat="server" class="sf_cols">
            <div id="div2" runat="server" class="sf_colsOut">
                <div id="div3" runat="server" class="sf_colsIn">
    <div class="trio">
        <div id="Div4" runat="server" class="sf_cols">
            <div id="div5" runat="server" class="sf_colsOut">
                <div id="div6" runat="server" class="sf_colsIn">
    <div class="trio last">
    <div id="Div7" runat="server" class="sf_cols">
            <div id="div8" runat="server" class="sf_colsOut">
                <div id="div9" runat="server" class="sf_colsIn">

    A rebuild of the project and restart of Sitefinity resolved this.
