Dear experts i need your help to answer the following question:

Suppose you had a command button called Duplicate.  Write code so that when Duplícate is pressed, a new copy of the button appears 200 twips below the bottom of the original.

Thanks,

Suppose your command button on the form is at 720, 960. It will move to 720, 1160 when it clicks.

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Command1.Move 720, Top + 200
End Sub

Place a command button on the form.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim otxtnew As CommandButton

Set otxtnew = Controls.Add("VB.commandbutton", "otxtNew")
With otxtnew
..Visible = True
..Caption = "Duplicate1"
..Width = Command1.Width
..Height = Command1.Height
..Top = Command1.Top + 200
..Left = Command1.Left
End With
End Sub

You can also use Load Statement to create a control array. In design time you can place a 0 into Index of a command button then when you click on the command button in click event you can have this.

It would look something like this.
After you set the Index of first command button to 0
Private Sub Command1_Click(Index As Integer)
Load Command1(1)
Command1(1).Move Command1(0).Left + Command1(0).Width, 900
Command1(1).Visible = True
End Sub

Correction: It moves below the bottom of the original command button, not next to the original.

Private Sub Command1_Click(Index As Integer)
Load Command1(1)
Command1(1).Move Command1(0).Left, Command1(0).Top + 200
Command1(1).Visible = True
End Sub
