VB2005 Replacement for Control Arrays in the old VB6

P: 5
I have several VB6 applications that I am rewriting in VB2005 Express. I used invisible control arrays to place labels over snapshots on a thumbnail screen. Choosing one of the thumbs would open the enlarged version of that thumb from a file folder of jpgs. Unfortunately VB2005 no longer has a way to make a click event on a particular portion of a larger thumbnail screen. I just need an idea from anyone who has one. I thought of tracking cursor coordinates and somehow converting that to a specific location on the screen but I have not had any luck perfecting the math for it. Thank you anyone for help. /ji John in Salem, Oregon

You are asking the crusty old vb characters when you really need the hip young flash .NET go getters. :)

I resent that remark, and as soon as I find my walking frame, you're in big trouble... ;)
