It's easy enough to implement a single DOM object with events in Visual Basic, but what if the document has child documents in frames and you aren't sure how many?

Here's the situation: I am dynamically reading/modifying web pages with mshtml.  Some pages, however, have multiple child documents in frames.  The current solution that I've implemented is to create 10 HTMLDocument objects and load however many child documents that exist (assuming no more than 10).  This allows me to trap events from each one.  Is there a way to dynamically create an event procedure since I don't know how many children there are?

Dim WithEvents mdoc As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc1 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc2 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc3 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc4 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc5 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc6 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc7 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc8 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc9 As HTMLDocument
Dim WithEvents mdoc10 As HTMLDocument

I set the first one to the parent document and create the events for it.  Then I create all the events for all of the children and then implement however many children that are contained in frames in the parent (up to 10).  Is there a way to dynamically catch the child events intead of doing it this way?
