This statement loads controls

Load Label1(2)

The do with it what you will... for example

Label1(2).Caption = "New Label"


Load more than one example:

Dim L As Long

For L = 2 To 5
    Load Label1(L)
Next L

Remember that the new label will load into the same position as label1(0) so you also need to change the location settings

label1(L).left =
label1(L).Top =

LVL 19

set x as new label1
x.top = 0
x.left = 0
x.caption = "Hello"
x.visible = true

Here is some generic code that shows an easy way to always load up another label.  Each time the button is pushed, another lable will appear directly below the previous one.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Load Label1(Label1.Count)
    Label1(Label1.UBound).Top = Label1(0).Top + (Label1.Count - 1) * Label1(0).Height
    Label1(Label1.UBound).Visible = True
End Sub
