Hi experts,

How can I add new object like buttons or listviews on a forms when program running and save created objects. And created objects are needed to be on the same form when program  running secondly and after.

I have used a contexmenustrip for adding buttons with right click. But when program  secondly runs, the created objects are not on the form.

How can I save objects all the time until user deleting objects.

Thank you

Oguzhan

The only way to do that is to RECREATE those controls on next run.

Right...you'd have to save all the information about the added controls (location, size, text, etc.) in a file (possibly XML?), and then read the file on Form load and re-created those controls again.

To wire up dynamic controls, use the AddHandler() method.
