Creating objects on a form using Form_Load.....

Ok, this one is a bit harder.

I want 31 new labels for my form, with the values 1 - 31. I know there must be an easier way to add them other then manually enter them in, so I thought I would ask the experts!!

I appreciate any help

At design time, no.  

The only way to do it is to add them manually.  You could create them at run time using Form1.Controls.Add but that would require resizing, locating, and setting all other properties at run time (which is a pain).

Here is the sample Code:  First put one label control on the form in the design time, then, call this procedure with number of labels u want.

Private Sub LoadPOControls(iLoadCount As Integer)
'dynamically load controls

On Error GoTo ErrHandler

Dim iUnloadCount As Integer

If iLoadCount > 0 Then
   
    'Load Controls
    lblLabel(0).Caption = 1
    For lcv = 1 To iLoadCount - 1
        With frm
            Load .lblLabel(lcv)
            .lblLabel(lcv).Top = .lblLabel(lcv - 1).Top + 400
            .lblLabel(lcv).Caption = Val(.lblLabel(lcv - 1).Caption) + 1
            .lblLabel(lcv).Visible = True
        End With
    Next

End If

End Sub


Delete the duplication queston on this.

Place no controls on the form and use this code in the form load event

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim i As Integer
Dim ControlX As Control
   i = 1
   For i = 1 To 31
      Me.Controls.Add "VB.Label", "Label" & i, Me
      For Each ControlX In Me.Controls
         If ControlX.Name = "Label" & i Then
            ControlX.Visible = True
            ControlX.Top = i * 400
            ControlX.Height = 300
            ControlX.Width = 1000
            ControlX.Caption = ControlX.Name
            ControlX.BorderStyle = 1
         End If
      Next
   Next

End Sub

why dont you try using control Array ?

Although , if you use control array you trap events but if you plan to create controls at run time  using Withevents ( withevents has limitations viz in VB6 ie is it doesnt allow arrays) .

Moreoever if you simply replicate controls during runtime with out using withevents - you cannot trap events.


Only thing you can do is to use control array

If you need more info on how to do it , lemme know.
