Can I design controls at runtime, resizing and dropping controls at runtime. I have restaurant application, there is a form where I have to design tables (buttons).

Best regards,
Bujar Akiki

Hi Bujar,

yes, you can create your controls dynamically and make use of the PropertyGrid to make changes to the appearance of that control.

Hope this is some help.


This is what I found out:
I created a form that contained a PropertyGrid a Panel and a Button. The buttons event handler creates a new button button = new Button() and adds that to the panel Panel1.Controls.Add(button).
The property grid is hooked to the button via PropertyGrid1.ObjectSelected = button and presto: A button was dynamically created and can be manipulated via the property grid.

Ain't that .NET framework neat ;)

End Modification:

           CheckBox newCheckBox = new CheckBox { Text = "New CheckBox", ThreeState = true };
           List<Control> lst = new List<Control>();
