They can be copied from a single button created in the designer to duplicate all the propertie
but I dont want all the properties duplicated.
each command button needs at least three assignable properties.
I have found that I can use the
but I need 1 more to use to define the control.
.text is used by the control to represent a item in the array.
I did get the buttons array to work by making a database with buttons using the above three assignable properties.
this entailed using a seperate file for each button.
and a list of button names.
but all of the above could have been done with
for i = 1 to 20
button(X).tag = a
button(X).accessabledeffinition = b
button(X).text = c
X = X + 1
but because there is no control array in vb.net
my 28 kb program is already over 800 kb
and Im only half way finished converting it.
in fact I havent touched it today because of the stress.
I have thought today about making a user control that would work exactly like a old style control array.
and the control could have a few more tweaks.
