Consider a control array of command buttons.  Since all elements of a control array have the same name, how can the programmer determine which button has been clicked?

Thanks,

you determine it by the control's index number

Command1(0)
Command1(1)
Command1(2)


when you only have 1 command button on a form its events look like this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   'some code
End Sub


when its in a control array it looks like this:


Private Sub Command1_Click(Index As Integer)
   'some code
End Sub



notice the new 'index' parameter.  this parameter tells you which command button was pressed by using Command1(Index)

If you want to know what button was clicked you can do that
command1_Click(Index as Integer)

SElect Case Index
   case 0
   case 1
   case 2
   and so on.
end select
