I have created a User-Defined control.  I want to add an array of standard VB Shape controls to my User-Defined control dynamically.  For example,  I want to display an array of multicolored rectangles on my User-Defined control.  I don't know how many rectangles are in the array until the user tells me.   Possible?  If so how?

Place a control named Shape1 on the usercontrol. Set its index property to 0. Then, to add a control, call Load Shape1(1), Load Shape1(2) and so on. After each call, set the .Visible property to true, and reposition the shape (or it can be any other control) using .Left and .Top properties. This is called a control array
