User pointer in GUI controls

Do GUI controls in VB have a spare pointer/property that the programmer can use to point to his own object?

In Delphi, there is - and its called a 'tag' property.

It would typically be available for each GUI control.  If so, is this property also available under Visual C++?

All Controls in VB have a Tag property, however for a lot of controls this just holds a text string.

The Tag property for the MS Common Controls with VB6 holds a Variant type so you can assign an object.

As for C++ you'd have to ask the C++ guys.
