I have a web form with has two dropdown list items. But at run time, I dynamically add the 5 text box controls to the form.

Now I want to read the data entered in these 5 text boxes into an array so that I could then loop through the array to save it to the SQL server table.

I am proficient in VB and request a sample VB code that handles my request.

Thank you all in advance.

as its only 5 objects why not address them directly?

MyArray(1)=myObject1.Text
MyArray(2)=myObject2.Text
MyArray(3)=myObject3.Text
MyArray(4)=myObject4.Text
MyArray(5)=myObject5.Text

To further explain, I wish to let you know that the 5 objects that are created at run time are read from a table. The table hold the name of the control and the label that it should display.

For eg.

ID, CONTROL_NAME, CONTROL_LABEL, FORM_ID
1,'Customer_ID','Customer ID',1
2,'Customer_Name','Customer Name' ,1
3,'Customer_ID','Customer ID',2
4,'Customer_Name','Customer Name' ,2
5,'Amount','Amount',2

etc

So I read the database to paint the html for the web form.  The controls are not fixed, it depends on the rows in the table.

Now how can i assign myObject1.text since the myobject1 in my form_id=1 is Customer_id

ok dont know the exact syntax, but a For Each should do it

idxA=1
For Each MyCtrl In MyFrm
    If TypeOf MyCtrl Is TextBox Then
        MyArray(idxA) = MyCtrl.Text    
        idxA=idxA+1
    End If
Next MyCtrl
