I need to know how I can create more controls on the screen at run time, so that I can keep on, for example, creating text-boxes, with no limit, and be able to change and set properties at run time?

You have to use what is known as a control array.  What you do is put a control on the form of whatever type you want to duplicate.  To add another one, use

Load mycontrol(index)

where index is the next available number.  So if you're justt starting, index would be 1
You can also use

Load mycontrol(mycontrol.ubound+1)

Then set its properties

mycontrol(index).visible = true
mycontrol(index).top = 500

You can get the number of controls in the control array by using
total = mycontrol.ubound

To remove a control from the control array use

Unload mycontrol(index)

The control array starts at index = 0
0
