dynamically controlling GUI

I want to dynamically create the GUI in Visual basic 6.0 from XML.
Can somebody help me

Thanks for answer
 But I need to add 15 controls.How can I trap events for all such controls
1 Solution
The following code is an example of adding a label dynamicly, you must put on your form a label with the name Label0 and set its index to zero, the rest of the labels will be created dynamically.
In the example iCount is the number of the label that we are creating.

Call Controls.Add("VB.Label", "Label_name", form1)
   Load Label0(iCount)
   Set Label0(iCount).Container = form1
     With Label0(iCount)
            .Visible = True
            .Width = 800
            .Top = 200
            .Tag = .Top
            .Left = 100
            .Height = 195
            .Caption = "label test"
        End With

  Controls.Remove "Label_name

you can find a full example in the following address:

you will need to create controls at run-time: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q190670
by using control arrays like suggested by ronenr, you would  trap the events for the controls by putting code in the event on your form.  If you have a label name lblDynamic(0) on your form, you can then add more labels like lblDynamic on the form using ronenrs example.  To code against the other controls, you would put the code in the events for lblDynamic(0).  The index parameter in the even will let you know which actual lblDynamic fired the event.
