Creating TextBoxes Dynamically

In my previous posting I failed miserably, to give enough information to get
my difficulty apparent.

So to start again. I want to create textboxes dynamically in VB.NET. This
is not a web application that I'm trying to build. I should add that i am a
very new user to VB.NET and as such am very ignorant so please excuse this.

Many thanks for any assistance.

regards

Hi Brian,

To create any kind of object dynamically you just call its constructor.

TextBox t = new TextBox();

This will create a TextBox object and store a reference to it in 't'.

Before you can see it you also need to add it to a container object, like
a windows form

Me.Controls.Add (t)

You should now be able to see a TextBox at the default position with
default size.

To create several TextBoxes, repeat the code above.
To keep track of the various TextBoxes you can set the TextBox.Name
property, store the references in various lists etc.

I've made a form with a variable number of textboxes. The user fills them out, and then I need to pick up the values he has filled in. The number of textboxes vary depending on a value that the user filled in in another page. But suppose there were 3 values. In that case, I know the names of the fields, they are MyTextBox1 MyTextbox2 MyTextbox3

I found I can create Template columns dynamically - as long as I don't use objects that need onclick events, such as a LinkButton. Textboxes and Labels work fine. I create the Template columns like so: Dim column as TemplateColumn = new TemplateColumn() column.HeaderText = "Template Column" column.ItemStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(width) column.HeaderStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(width)

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
