I am taking a class that has requested us to create a checker board.  I am having problems with clearing the board
and starting again.  I have a group array of labels for the checker squares.  I need to clear the BackColor from Blue to
white (vbwhite?), as well as set the focus to the TextBox control for the start value.  Here is my sample.  I can clear
the text boxes, but can not clear the labels and reset the program.  I am only clearing one of the 15 checkboxes (and I made sure that the label array was set up correctly)

Private Sub Command1_Click()
'clear input amount and outputs
Text1.Text = ""
Text2.Text = ""
Text3.Text = ""
Label1(Intex).BackColor = vbWhite

Use a FOR...NEXT LOOP!

Try the following:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
'clear input amount and outputs
Text1.Text = "" 
Text2.Text = "" 
Text3.Text = "" 

For Count = Min to Max              'where Min is the smallest,
  Label1(Count).BackColor = vbWhite 'and Max is the largest
Next Count                          'number in the array!

Hope this will not be considered cheating!
