Dynamically Controlling form controls.

I have all the names of the controls in an DataTable in my application. I need to enable/disable, set textboxes to readonly, set password characters etc from a section of code based on the data in this datatable.
The data will appear the datatable like this:


Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Well, you can do something like this:

dim ctl as control
dim rows() as datarow
for each ctl in me.controls
  rows = YourTable.Select("[CONTROL_NAME] = '" & ctl.Name & "'")
  if rows.length > 0
    ctl.readonly = rows(0)("Read") 'I suppose that Read = Ture is a read only control
  end if
