I want to use the frmDroppers.Controls.Add to add a number of picture boxes (50 or more) into a program during runtime, i want to be able to control each picturebox, how can i make the added control an array item? or whats the best way to add the controls?

curently i've been using:

   form1.Controls.Add "VB.Picturebox", "NewPic", PicSpace
   With form1!NewPic
      .Picture = pic1.Picture
      .AutoSize = 1
      .Left = 1925
      .BorderStyle = 0
      .Visible = True
   End With

(PicSpace is the name of the picturebox the picture is being created in and pic1 contains the picture to be placed into the new control.

Does this make sence?

thanks in advance

How about trying this:

Create a picture box with index 0.

Then, add this code:

For i = 1 To 50 'Or whatever number you want
Load Picture(i)
Picture(i).Picture = pic1.Picture 'or maybe an array of pictures
Picture(i).AutoSize = 1
Picture(i).Left = 1925
Picture(i).BorderStyle = 0
Picture(i).Visible = True
Next i

That's it!

hello xizor,

sorry i'm a newbie in vb and not sure about the best way..

add in design:
PicSpace.Index=0

add in your code:
Load PicSpace(PicSpace.Count) 'control with next index
With PicSpace(PicSpace.Count-1) 'use new control
     .Picture = pic1.Picture
     .AutoSize = 1
     .Left = 1925
     .BorderStyle = 0
     .Visible = True
End With
