Hi All!

Ok.. I have a small loop that creates a new PANEL, After each panel is created I also am creating a new LABEL within that panel.. as its child.

The problem is I only get one LABEL in the first PANEL?

Im stumped..
Thanks in Advance..

Code is below..
Dim panelx(10) As Panel
        Dim labelx(10) As Label
 
        CNT = 0
        Dim looper
        For looper = 1 To 9
 
            panelx(looper) = New Panel
            labelx(looper) = New Label
 
            panelx(looper).BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle
            panelx(looper).BackColor = Color.Pink
            panelx(looper).Width = 123 * looper
            panelx(looper).Height = 123
            panelx(looper).Location = New Point(10, 10)
 
 
            Me.Controls.Add(panelx(looper))
 
 
            ToolTip1.SetToolTip(panelx(looper), looper)
            ToolTip1.SetToolTip(labelx(looper), ".." & looper)
 
            labelx(looper).Location = New Point(-1, -2)
            labelx(looper).MinimumSize = New Size(24, 24)
            labelx(looper).Size = New Size(24, 24)
            labelx(looper).TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
            labelx(looper).BackColor = Color.GreenYellow
            labelx(looper).Text = looper.ToString
            
panelx(looper).Controls.Add(labelx(looper))
 
        Next looper

Open in new window

Your code is working and labels are inserted, but overlapping panels.

Replace the hnasr commented lines and check:

            panelx(looper).Width = 123 '* looper ==== hnasr commnted the multiplication
            panelx(looper).Height = 123
            panelx(looper).Location = New Point(10 + (looper-1) * 123, 10) 'hnasr changed the left of the panel
