The section of code
is only adding the first item in the list of four.

What am I missing?
private void mainForm_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

            int _y = 100;

            rs.CursorLocation = CursorLocationEnum.adUseClient;
            rs.Open(sql, Connection, CursorTypeEnum.adOpenForwardOnly, LockTypeEnum.adLockReadOnly, 0);
            int _recordCount = rs.RecordCount;
            Label[] d_event_title = new Label[_recordCount];
            Label[] d_event_type = new Label[_recordCount];

because I did a lot of testing to be sure.

if I do this
then the next one shows but not the following two don't show,

if I do this.

then the first availble one shows but not the last, and if I comment out the first three then the last one shows, I've even reordered them to see what happens, and always the first one in the list is added but not the others.
