I'm building a break-timer application. The objective of this, in VB, is to have an application that lets me create a timer dynamically (maybe through a button click) that counts up (or down if you wanna call it that) to a preset point, then makes beeping noises like an alarm. This is due to my desire to no longer be late to and from my breaks at work.

I was able to create a super simple one that just had three timers that I could tick off, but I find myself using them for way more than just three uses. For example, I start one when I get in to count to the point when I need to punch in my timecard (our system is annoying about being exactly on time) then I start one for when my first break starts, then one for my break, then one for after my break but before my lunch, etc.
So, I wanted to have a program that does the following:Has a scrollbar-capable box that can scroll up and down.Each line of the Scrollbar-capable box has one of my custom controls in it (a wide, thin bar containing a field for how long to go, a start button, a display of time elapsed in seconds, and a stop button).
I can just click a button to create each control one line at a time.Now, I know HOW I can create these, but I want to know:Is there an existing type of box that would let me do something like this? Has someone already written this? Or am I going to be creating a COMPLETELY custom control that will be fairly painful to figure out? In which case, is this even doable, or should I just try something else?
