How To Create Array Of ComboBox Controls

Apr 21, 2010

I have a form I am designing for work, and there are 3 combo boxes I want on it that display the same choice (unit of measurement selection). Now instead of 3 separately named boxes, I wanted to make an array of combo box, now I thought if I created 1, then copy pasted it would make them an array as the same name but it just lists the new one with a default name.

The controls are on Tabs but I don't think I need to include the Tab as a container control, just refer directly to the textbox on the form, but I cannot work out how this is done in VB .NET format. In VB6 it was relatively straightforward but VB .NEt seems it is different. Can anyone help me with the correct way to formulate

Create A Fake Array Using Generics Instead Of Using An Array

Jun 23, 2012

This was an experiment to see if I could create a fake array using generics instead of using an array. I decided to try it, because I may use it if I find any advantages to using it over an array. it works, I am just asking for a second or third opinion, have I screwed anything up, or is there an easier way to accomplish this? If I use it, it will be for a 2D game I am creating, and is used to draw the 2D screen graphics, placing an image based on what image identifier is located at what coordinates. The value stored in the fake array is an integer that disignates the graphic to draw and whether it is passible or not, i.e. 0 = a floor image, 501 = a wall image that is impassible (any image number > 500 is impassable) The Class definition:

Creating An Array Of Controls?

May 19, 2009

I need to be able to refer to a set of controls on a Windows form using an array, but I'm having a few difficulties.

The Windows form (WForm.vb) contains two textboxes (TextBox1 and TextBox2).

In Module1.vb I have created an array reference to the textboxes thus:

Public wf As New WForm
Public ReadOnly TB() As Control = {wf.TextBox1, wf.TextBox2}

Then, in WForm.vb I have tried to refer to the textboxes via the array:


TB(0).Text = "Change text to this"

I know that the array is referring to the textboxes, because when I hover the cursor over the line 'TB(0).Text = "Change text to this" ' in debug mode, I get the following:

(0)|{Text = "Change text to this"}
(1)|{Text = ""}

but for some reason, the text in TextBox1 on the form isn't actually being changed!
(There is obviously no problem with change the textbox's text at this point in the code, because I've tried substituting the array reference 'TB(0)' with a direct reference to the textbox 'TextBox1', and the problem disappears.

Make An Array Of Different Controls?

Sep 3, 2010

I've been making a table control for a few days, and I've got to the point of making it capable of accepting new data. To do this, I'm making it generate a row of text boxes, combo boxes, and date selection windows along the row that you're entering data into.

I've tried using an array of 'control' types and changing them to whatever specific control I need as I generate it. That sort of works. For example, the code under 'Case "Employees"' below will make a combo box display on the form, but 'ControlArray(i).Items.Add' gives an error because it doesn't think that ControlArray(i) is actually a combobox yet.

You might also be interested to know that everything will have to be dynamically generated since the table I'm using will not always be the same (and the Select Case code will eventually be replaced by something that checks for relationships in the database).

Dim ControlArray(NumberOfColumns - 1) As Control
For i As Integer = 0 To NumberOfColumns - 1
ControlArray(i) = New TextBox

Adding New Row Of Controls Linked To An Array?

Jun 3, 2011

I am trying to make a form that is blank and will add in 2 comboboxes, a textbox, 2 buttons and a checkbox next to each other in a row. I want the controls to be part of an array, so that all controls on a row are associated with that array number.I am currently able to make the first row appear when the form is loaded, however when i click one of the buttons(which are used to create thenext row of controls) it comes up with an error stating that the index was outside the array bounds.

Here is the code I currently have:

Public Class frmWhere
Public SQLString3 As String
Public locationy As Integer

Multi-dimensional Array Of Controls

Nov 18, 2010

I'm writing an application in VB.NET and face the following issue. I'm trying to create an interface that will allow the user to select their availability given a range of times and the days of the week. I want to create checkbox controls in a tabular form with two indices that I can use to refer to a certain time range and a day of the week.[code]I followed the article found here which creates and exposes a control array,however it is not multi-dimensional. Does anyone know of a similar way to dynamically generate controls and store them in a multi-dimensional array in VB.NET?

Property Editor For Array Of Controls

May 21, 2012

If you have a Component (or Control) with a public property of type Control, then in the Properties Window you automatically get a drop down of all the controls on the same form as the component, which is very handy. If you want to do the same thing but with an array of controls then the Properties Window shows the ellipsis and you get the Collection Editor with the Add / Remove buttons creating and deleting an instance of Control (i.e. the base class used for deriving all the others) - not quite so handy.

How do I get a list of the controls on a form and be able to select more than one? I think I need to create a custom UITypeEditor? Assuming that's right then I think I need a dialog box (like the Font dialog) with Available and Selected ListBoxes with Add / Remove buttons and appropriate code to link the control array in the component to changes in the Selected list box? Along with an appropriate UITypeEditor derived class.

Assuming that's correct, how do you get a list of the controls on a form at design time? Can I do that form design as a Windows Form, just as normal, or is it all done by hand? I've seen some code that does it with a UserControl rather than a Form, presumably that's for when you want a 'pop-up' control (like the one for Color selection)?

Populating A Form With An Array Of Controls During Runtime?

Jan 20, 2010

I am new to VB 2008 express (I am a 'C' coder but have played with VB6 before). I am writing a simple program that will use the serial port. What I would like to do is, upon some trigger event, open a form, and depending on the amount of serial ports available, populate this form with an array of checkboxes with each check box corresponding to an available serial port. The user could then choose a port which would then determine the PortName.

VS 2005 - Creating Array Of Custom Controls?

Nov 6, 2009

I am creating an array of customer controls by doing the following:
Dim CtlLosArray(150) As Control

Then I'm setting up the first control in the array like this:
CtlLosArray(1) = New ShieldLOSInfobox
CtlLosArray(1).Location = New Point(0, 0)
CtlLosArray(1).Visible = True
CtlLosArray(1).Name = "Label1"

Now on this custom control I have a panel and a few text boxes and as you can see I may be adding about 150 of these custom controls. What I am wanting to do is to be able to access that control then the item on that control based on the array. Something like the following:
CtlLosArray(1).Controls.Item(Panel1).backcolor = Color.Yellow
But the above does not work. How I can access a specific item on the customer control within the array?

VS 2008 Enumerated Controls An Array Of Panels?

Aug 13, 2009

I'm working on an menu program right now which has 20 panels used to display bmps that can be clicked on to select things. These panels are simply named something like pnl01, pnl02, etc. to pnl20. I'd like to make them into an array, like pnl(0) through pnl(19), so i can change the bmp on different panels like this:

x = 7
pnl(x).backgroundimage = image.fromfile(file)

i thought this had something to do with enumerated controls but after some searching i couldn't figure out if i was looking for the right thing.

Create An Object With Controls?

Feb 15, 2012

What would be the best approach to create the following: A groupbox that contains several labels a groupbox with an array of 8 labels in it

Then the main form would have 4 of these groupboxs (object?) and I would need the ability to change the color and text of all the various labels within any of the groupboxes, using an index similar to what we could do with control arrays in VB6.

I would think an object would make the most sense but can you have control elements in an object and display them on the form?

Create A Planning Program By Using Own Controls?

May 12, 2011

I'm trying to create a planning program by using my own controls.I first make a control to create the entire field with a flow panel at the top for the header.Then below that flow panel I put a flowpanel for each row.Each flow panel in a row has four labels and one regular panel.The second control I make is one that creates a bar created from 2 pictureboxes and a panel. The panel is then variable based on the number of days it covers.

This control is then positioned in the regular panel of each row flow panel. (still with me??)I have not counted the amount of bar-controls that are put on the form, but there are a lot.and then I get the error: Error creating window handle.So I must be doing something wrong, but then how can one create a planning like panel with horizontal bars in different sizes depending of the amount of days.
