Trying to create a configuration form

P: 1
Hello, I am trying to create a configuration form similar to that of Winamp.

I would like a list box on the left with a number of options. When an option is selected in that list box a container shows up on the right with the necessary fields.

I was thinking of working with .visible for labels and text boxes, but this would be chaotic, and I know there must be an easier way to do it.

Any help would be appreciated for this beginner.

Seems to me that a TreeView control woul dbe ideal for the left-hand side. For the right-hand pane, perhaps you could simply have a series of Picturebox controls, or Frames (or whatever the equivalent is in your VB version). Then you just make visible the one which is selected on the left.

The idea, of course, is that the PictureBox (or whatever) is a container that holds a complete group of controls for the selected option.

There are other alternatives, such as tabbed windows.
