Hi experts!

I have 81 textboxes in a form in a 9x9-pattern.
They are named TextBoxXY (where XY are the corresponding numbers in the 9x9-patter, for example TextBox11 is the first and TextBox99 is the last).
I need to copy data from theese boxes into an array ( square(1,1) ) but I can't make the coding effective.

As it is now it says:
square(1,1) = TextBox11
square(1,2) = TextBox12
square(1,3) = TextBox13
...
square(9,7) = TextBox97
square(9,8) = TextBox98
square(9,9) = TextBox99

This is not really efficient.
What I would like is some sort code that looks something like this:

for i = 1 to 9
   for j = 1 to 9
      square(i,j) = TextBoxij
   next
next

Thank you for your help!

(slight correction)

for i = 1 to 9
   for j = 1 to 9
      square(i,j) = Me("TextBox" & i & j)
   next
next

Thank you for your fast reply!

I tried both your examples but I receive an error-message saying:
"Class 'WindowsApplication1.Form1' cannot be indexed because it has no default property."

I have no idea what that means. Please help.

I had to write
Me.Controls("TextBox" & i & j).Text
for it to work, but now it works. =D
