Control array problems

Hi,

I'm using control array to create controls at runtime on a tabstrip. I have a command button on the form with index = 0 and I create more buttons using

    iNextBtn = btnClose.Count
    Load btnClose(iNextBtn)
    With btnClose(iNextBtn)
        .caption = "&Close"
        .Tag = sNamedCell
        Set .Container = Controls(sNamedFrame)
    End With

and when the tab has to be closed, I unload the button with
    Unload btnClose(iBtnIndex)

However, when I unload the button with index say 1 and then subsequently try to load the button with the same Index, I get a runtime error that the item is already locked.  I'd like to know why this happens.  I can find a way to work around this, but I'd like to understand why I get the runtime error.

TIA
-RK

Could you please post your code where the error is raised?

You might try this:

Unload btnClose(iBtnIndex)
Set btnClose(iBtnIndex) = Nothing

I haven't seen all your code but are you declaring the array as myarray() AS control.
       I usually use collections there easy to program and have a much more sophisticated item handling abilities.

Check your tabstrip control, maybe it hold btnClose(1)

rkrishc think of this:

Create Buttons as follows:

Index = 1
Index = 2
Index = 3
Index = 4

Then Remove button where index = 2

Your Button.Count returns 3 yet index = 3 already exists so you will certainly get an error generated.

If you always use Button.UBound + 1 you can be assured that you will always get a valid index created. Obviously this may cause some gaps in your control array but this can be dealt with if necessary.
