:: URGENT ::  Dynamically Created Controls at Run-Time.  Cannot access thier Index or assigned value (.TAG) property when clicked.

I have a panel (Panel1) which serves as my container, which houses a collection of tiled pictureboxes.  These pictureboxes are Dynamically Created as controls during Run-Time.  I use a nested For...Next environment to accomplish the Row-Column Tiling effect.  THAT IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

The problem is during the For...Next iteration (when I build the Dynamic Controls) I use:

AddHandler myPB.Click, AddressOf myPB_Click    <<-- This creates a Click Event for the newly created Control.

    Private Sub myPB_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        MsgBox(Panel1.GetContainerControl.ActiveControl.Tag)    <<-- Breaks here...
    End Sub

When I dynamically create TEXTBOXES the Click event gives me the (.TAG) information, but when I Dynamically create PICTUREBOXES (which is what I need to use) the GetContainerControl.ActiveControl.Tag RETURNS a NULL VALUE (Nothing) and breaks.

Any Ideas???

Is there a better way to detect which control I am clicking and successfully returning the Index or “assigned value” like in the .TAG property??
