Variable label name

I am attempting to display an array by using labels.  However, I need to be able to use a variable within the label name to know what to display.

For example:

         For i = 1 to intNumNodes
                ToNode(i) = intValue
         Next i

        lblNode(i).caption = intValue     <---------- This is the problem

I have labels named lblNode1, lblNode2, etc.

I appreciate any helped provided.

Thanks,
Jeff

next i

For i = 1 to intNumNodes
                ToNode(i) = intValue
         Next i

 for i = 0 to Innumnodes - 1
        lblNode(i).caption = intValue    
next i
0
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

IntValue is an integer.  However, the problem is with the lblNode(i).caption line.  VB doesn't accept that as a valid label name.  Is there some way to include the varible i within the label name?

You could use an array of labels!! matching some like this:

  For i = 1 to intNumNodes
                lblNode(i).caption  = ToNode(i)
 Next i

Or see CallByname function in MSDN Help.

Thanks I'm using your suggestion with the label array.  Never used it before, but makes perfect sense in this case.

Thanks,
Jeff

Array of controls use less resources than using label1, label2, label3 and so on.
You could use array of each vb intrinsic controls and almost all ocx.
Cheers ... again.
