Is it possible to add different types of controls to a single collection? For example i would like to add an array of textboxes, check boxes, and option boxes to the same collection so I can loop through the collection and set properties of each control. Also is it possible to tell what type of control it is as you are looping throught the collection? Please provide code. Thanks

Something like this :

**********START CODE

dim o as Label
dim c as new Collection
dim iTeller as integer
dim Enumerator as Object

for iTeller=0 to 100
  Set o = new Label
  c.Add o , Cstr(iTeller)
next iTeller

dim o2 as ComboBox

for iTeller=101 to 200
  Set o = new ComboBox
  c.Add o , Cstr(iTeller)
next iTeller

for each Enumerator in c
  if Enumerator is TypeOf Label
    'Do stuff with your label
  endif

  if Enumerator is TypeOf ComboBox
     'Do stuff with you ComboBox
  endif
next

************END CODE

Your syntax is wrong for the If statements it should read

if TypeOf Enumerator is Label then
end if
