visual basic question... marshall, im looking at you

Post by timmeh87 » Tue May 16, 2006 2:06 pm

how do i create an object at runtime? i need to have an arbitrary number of picture boxes on a form. now, i guess i could put a few hundred (yes, i need hundreds) off in the corner and use them as i need them, but im almost positive i can just sponataneously generate them as i need them.

any insight?

ps. visual basic 6

You just need one picturebox with the attributes set to what you want. Set its ArrayIndex to 0.

Make a command button or something, and put in

Code: Select all

For i = 1 to how_many_boxes_you_need
    Load picBlah(i)
    picBlah(i).Visible = True
    picBlah(i).Left = wherever
    picBlah(i).Top = wherever
