Vb Control Arrays

Vb Control Arrays

Vb Control Arrays

I am sure there is a simple solution to my problem, I just can't figure it out.

I want to change a column of check boxes to a control array. I know that this is usually done at design time but I have already built this form and would just like to change it in stead of redesigning it.

Any comments would be appriciated.

Thanks, Vicpro

RE: Vb Control Arrays

you dont have to redesign the whole form. Just rename the checkboxes. First come up with a name of the checkbox. Next rename all the checkboxes with this name. If you didn't specify the indexes it will automatically make one for you (except for the first). Just make sure there will be no conflict in the indexes.
But if your program is already compiled then there's no way of changing the control names anymore.

RE: Vb Control Arrays

Thank you for the response. However, I have already compiled the code so I am just going to redesign the thing.

Thanks anyway.
