Hi,

how can i check if there's a duplicate value in array?
Dim array(9) as String

array(0) = Textbox1.Text
array(1) = Textbox2.Text
array(2) = Textbox3.Text
array(3) = Textbox4.Text
array(4) = Textbox5.Text
array(5) = Textbox6.Text
array(6) = Textbox7.Text
array(7) = Textbox8.Text
array(8) = Textbox9.Text
array(9) = Textbox10.Text


if there's a duplicate value or text then the backcolor of the textbox turns to red.


any help will be highly appreciated.

Try this:

C#
IEnumerable<Control> ctls = this.Controls.Cast<Control>();
var txtBoxQuery = from c in ctls
                  where c is TextBox && ctls.Count(x => x.Text == c.Text) > 1
                  select c;
foreach (Control c in txtBoxQuery)
        c.BackColor = Color.Red;



VB
Dim ctls As IEnumerable(Of Control) = Me.Controls.Cast(Of Control)()
Dim txtBoxQuery = From c In ctls Where TypeOf c Is TextBox And ctls.Count(Function(x) x.Text = c.Text) > 1 Select c
For Each c As Control In txtBoxQuery
   c.BackColor = Color.Red
