ProgID ?

Posted on 1998-10-10

I am using VB6 and have been reading up on adding controls at runtime without creating a control array first.

My problem is that I cannot find a list of the ProgID fields for certain controls (maybe they do not even exits).


I know for example, that button is VB.CommandButton, I tried VB.- for the above and it did not work...anyone know what the strings are?

Also, is it possible to declare a control array at runtime, in the same way you would create a single control?

The RichTextBox is RichTextLib.RichTextBox and
the TabStrip is MSComctlLib.TabStrip.

The way I determined this is from looking at the Object Browser (F2)

That is great, thanks for the tip (F2).

How about the other question, about creating a runtime control array?  Is this possible, and how?

I'm not sure about the other question. You might want to create another question and see if anyone else knows.

Good luck!
