C# How can loop through a series of labels to update the labels text

I am getting some great help from some great C# minds! Here is another question.

I am cycling through a loop six times to update six labesl (i.e. label1, label2, label3.. etc) rather than label1.Text and label2.Text etc I want to loop through them so I tried:

 label + Convert.ToString(intCounter).Text = newLabel;

It really doesn't like that. Any thoughts?

Try this:
for(int i=0; i < x; i++)
Control c = this.FindControl("label "+i);
if(c!= null and c is TextBox )
(c as TextBox).Text = [Value];

Missing information:
1) .NET framework version (2.0, 1.1, ...)
2) Application type (WinForms, ASP.NET, ...)

A quick and dirty way is:

foreach(Control Ctrl in Controls) {
      if(Ctrl.Name == "label1")
            ((Label)Ctrl).Text = "NEWTEXT";

just add ORs in the if or any logic you need.
