Special visual basic menus/menu effects

Posted on 2007-08-01

I am using Visual Basic and I have 114 chapters with 114 buttons in my program. I guess I don't want buttons no more because it takes up my entire window and it looks very ugly. Ive also tred creating 114 labels that would be clicked to open my 114 chapters, but that just took my entire window space. I need a special menu that is FREE and I can get my users to go to 114 chapters easily. Im not talking about the menu bar that is above the Window. I am speaking of some sort of navigation menu so people can access my 114 chapters faster and easier. I just need a simpler way to navigate to those 114 chapters.

Any links or codes appreciated.

    Why don't you use a treeview ? You can add icons to the nodes and group them by themes.
