I want to instantiate a control at runtine from the code of a UserControl. This is similar to a ComboBox creating a popup list. How can I do this? Do I just call "New" and "Show"? Or do I also have to link the new control with the parent form?

thanks

Sorry, too hasty in reading your question.

When do you want to create your runtime control, as soon as you instanciate the usercontrol or in a method or property off  the usercontrol

the code will remain the same

dim x as new textbox
x.left = 10
x.top = 10
'etc
me.controls.add(x)
