Hello

  the Control of array removed from vb.net, so you will not able to use it in the vb.net

Look at ms site
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vbcon/html/vbconcontrolarraychangesinvisualbasicnet.asp

and look also here for some talks about that in the newsgroups

I have not used .net yet, but my Java experience may apply since VB.Net seems to function in a similar way.

In Java, you also do not have control arrays.  To create a control array in Java, you actually create an object array, then set each object to the desired control, after which you can use the control as needed.

for  mnasman , okay i read the example and it can create 10 button inside the run time , that is one good step but the other important thing is how to deal with these buttons , the example show how to  build a click event to it but what i want is for example how i change the text of the  buttons not when i build it but in another part of the programe in another time

in VB6 i was able to say

button name(index).caption =....
in any part of my program

how that in VB.Net

I think the answer is yes and no.

Not too many experts have jumped up to .net yet, so there is a limit number who have started learning it.

Since VB.Net is so different from VB6, there are many things to learn.

My suggestion is to resubmit the question with the title "VB.Net control arrays"

--
Did you try to dimension an array of objects?
From there, can you set the objects to an control of the desired class?  ...something like this (again, I've only done it in Java...a while back...so the syntax may be slightly different):

Dim objSomeControl() as Object
Dim txtSomeControl as TextBox

ReDim objSomeControl(5)

set txtSomeControl = objSomeControl(0)

txtSomeControl.Text = "this is a test"

Set objSomeControl(0) = txtSomeControl
