Dynamically Add Global Array Items to Checklist in UserControl

I am planning on designing a UserControl with an empty checklist on it, compile the UserControl Library, and then at run-time spawn the UserControl and fill it with items from a globally declared array which will contain the data.

This would be called "dynamically filling a UserControl checklist", but the trick is compiling the UserControl Library in such a way to both (a) avoid compile errors, and (b) enable the checklist in the UserControl to fetch at run-time the array items from a globally declared array.

Create a property in your UserControl to receive an array of the type you want to pass:

Public Property DataArray As String()

Simply set that property from the application:

Dim yourArray As String()
'Fill the array
yourUserControl.DataArray = yourArray

In the UserControl, simply use Me.DataArray to access the data in the array.
