I am trying to create a form that will build itself from a XML file.  I've got it working but can't fugure out how dynamicaly name the form objects ( text fields, drop downs, etc.) based on the name specified in the XML file.

This is what I'm doing now:
Label label = new Label();

What'd I like to do is this:
Label "name from XML file" = new Label();

Thanks.

Use hastable

like

Hashtable ht=new Hashtable();

ht.put("name from xml file",new Label());


then retreive like this
Label l=(Label)ht.get("name from xml file");

dynamic creation of variables is not possible. You should depend either on Hashtable or Hashmap for this

Hashtable ht=new Hashtable();

ht.put("xmlelement1",new Label());
ht.put("xmlelement2",new Label());
ht.put("xmlelement3",new Label());
ht.put("xmlelement4",new Label());
ht.put("xmlelement5",new Label());


now if you want to access label 3

then

((Label)ht.get("xmlelement3")).Your method Executions()  here
