i would like to make a Control Array as in VB. (ex.) a control array of TPanel's. Each panel will have the same name but have an index to indicate which one is selected.
most components in VB have a index property just for this purpose, but Delphi components do not that i'm aware of.
thanks for the help in advance.

You can do this in many ways.

1.define a: array[0..10] of TPanel
2.create tpanels with unique name with number of panel added at the end.

for i:=1 to n do
begin
  with TPanel.Create(..) do
  begin
     name := 'MyPanel'+IntToStr(i);
  end;
end;

then you can use findcomponent to acces this panels.

example : TPanel(findcomponent('MyPanel1')).left := 20;
