I am dynamically building controls on a screen and need to attach some values for later reference to each control.  I attached an array of 2 values to each control through the Tag property.  So now I'm where I need to get those values out but I cannot figure out the syntax to access them.  Sorry if this is a lame question...I'm new at C#.net.  This is how I attached them:

                string[] strCtrlArray = new string[2];
                strCtrlArray[0] = strReportParameterName;
                strCtrlArray[1] = strParmCtrlProperty;

                    Type ctype = Type.GetType(strClsName);
                    objCtrl = Activator.CreateInstance(ctype);

                    strProp = "Tag";
                    pinf = ctype.GetProperty(strProp);
                    pinf.SetValue(objCtrl, strCtrlArray, null);
                   
                    this.Controls.Add(objCtrl as Control);

I know the values are there in an array because I can see them in debug.    But I can't figure out the syntax to get them out.

Thank you so much for your help!

Assuming you have the control object then you'll just have to cast the tag properties' value back to a string array:

string[] array = (string[]) objCtrl.Tag;
