Is there a way of displaying label that are labeled as
label1(0) to label1(5) then label2(0) through label2(5)
that is embeded in a loop like such.

Dim I%
Dim J%

Dim Command$
For J% = 0 To 5
For I% = 6 To 11
     
Command$ = "what ever" + Format$(I%) '& Chr(13)
'Will generate "User1" to "User60"
DoEvents
Label(Format(J%) & (Format$(I%))).Visible = True      

Next I%
Next J%

No, there is no way to use a variable for the object name.

You can dynamically compute the index of a control array, but the name of the control itself needs to be given. How could it compile otherwise?

There are other tricks you can do. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Yah, from what I can tell is that you want to create a control array.
We'll talk about creating one control array and you can create 2 or more after one of course!

Okay, I want to be able to dynamically add labels to my form.Create a leble, we'll set its name property to lblTest. The next step is important. Set the index property of the lblTest control to 0. So, we now have the first control in the lblTest() control arrayed as lblTest(0). Now in the form_load event I would simply write this code to create a dynamic number of labels based on a constant or whatever.

Form_Load()
Const NumofLables = 5
Dim x as integer

for x = 1 to NumOfLabels
    'the load statement is used to create a new instance of a    'control in this case a control array.    
    load lblTest(x)
'you have to make the control visible    
lblTest(x).visible = true
'set its caption
    lblTest(x).caption = x
'and position the control
    lblTest(x).top = lblTest(x - 1).height
next
end sub

whalla, I now have six labels created on the fly or dynamically.
Hope this helps.

Why not have just *one* label array and use, 0-5 as group #1, 6-11 as group #2, etc. This is *possible* to code where as having the control name as a variable is *NOT*.
