Hi,

I have to create a control on the form like:

list of valid courses
course          course date
1234               1/1/2006
12345             1/2/ 2006

and so on...i.e. the user can enter the course numbers and the associated dates, which will be used by my code in the program.

Which control should I use for this?

Thanks.

I would suggest a datagrid.  You can control data updates, inserts, and deletes via a data adapter.  It's a whole lot easier than creating a dynamic array of textboxes.

But I don't take the data from the database for the control i.e. the user enters on the form the course numbers and dates. So, how can I use a data grid?

Add a DataGrid to your form...

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    Private DT As DataTable

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim DS As New DataSet
        DT = DS.Tables.Add("CourseInfo")
        DT.Columns.Add("Course", GetType(String))
        DT.Columns.Add("Course Date", GetType(DateTime))
        DataGrid1.DataSource = DT
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        For Each DR As DataRow In DT.Rows
            Debug.WriteLine("Course: " & DR("Course") & ", Course Date: " & DR("Course Date"))
        Next
    End Sub

End Class
