You can't create a control array at runtime.

The way around this is to place one image control on your form with its index property set to 0.  Then when you need another control added to the array you can use the Load statement:

    Load Image1(Image1.Count) ' add one more to the control array

Here u need to place atleast one control as said by ANV and have to change the index prop to 0

for ex.,

place a command btn in a form and change its index property to 0 and run the code given below

it will create 10 btns


'==============================================
' To create 10 object start from 1 to 9 ( 1 obj placed already in the form)
'==============================================
    For i = 1 To 9        
'==============================================
'  creates  a obj in the form
'==============================================
       Load Command(i)                                                      
'==============================================
' by default visible is false for runtime created object so make it visible
'==============================================
       Command(i).Visible = True                                
'==============================================
'Moves the object to some place, by default all objects created at the same place. with out this all created objects stacked togethere
'==============================================
       Command(i).Top = Command(i).Top + i * 100
    Next


Cheers,
Arne.,
