Does anyone know how to create object (like textbox, command button, label, and so on) on runtime with VB6?
I means that when I clicked one button or do any action, then new textbox will appear.

In VB.Net look like this
Dim txt as New Textbox

But in VB6 don't know what's "New"..

Many Thanks

update : I intended to create new object from scratch, so we won't use any object that had been create then. <<--- If U know what I means, it's Control Array!

Is there any single reason to deal with this garbage called "VB6" at all? And even ask questions about it?

No sense at all.....
Y you are giving unreasonable suggestions....
If you know ans regarding ques...... then give it other wise

Well, this is you who think this suggestion is unreasonable (even though it was just a question, suggestive, perhaps). I'm sure VB6 makes no sense at all. Do you see any single reason to use it? :-)

I don't know why, but there're many student still VB6-ing on their Final Project, that's too shame..

Solution 1

Create a Control dynamically at Run time. Without using a Control Array. That is the control is not present at Design time But will appear at Run Time.

option Explicit
Dim withevents Cmd1 as CommandButton
private Sub Form_Load()
set Cmd1 = Controls.Add("vb.commandbutton", "Cmd1")
Cmd1.Width = 2000
Cmd1.Top = me.Height / 2 - Cmd1.Height / 2 - 100
Cmd1.Left = me.Width / 2 - Cmd1.Width / 2 - 100
Cmd1.Caption = "Dynamic Button"
Cmd1.Visible = true
End Sub
private Sub Cmd1_click()
MsgBox "I have been Created Dynamically at Run-time", _
, "Dynamic Controls"
End Sub

Why don't you create the Textbox and set it wherever you want and set it's visibility property to false, then based on whatever you want say another button click that you set it to visible. Just a thought!!!!

Nope, you forget the terms "Dynamically"
