ComboBox Array - Processing User Selections

I need to setup a variable number of comboboxes for users, depending on how many comboboxes a user wants.   (BTW, each combobox has the same options).   However, if I programattically add 15 comboboxes to the control collection of a form, I will be stuck with placing all the selectedIndex processing code in each of the comboboxe's selectedindexchanged events.

Given this situation, how can I use a single selectedIndexchanged event for a combobox array, and also detect which array element and selectedindex were clicked?

My thought is that there will obviously be one selectedindexchanged event for the combobox array, so the trick is to interrogate which array element of the combobox was selected along with detecting the selectedindex.
