     This code, will add elements to a control array element at runtime. This is very easy to do, as a control array is actually a collection and gives us a count.

' Assumes:First off, make SURE you do this trick to VB. copy your control on the form, answer YES to create a control array, delete the new instance. Otherwise the control is not a collection.
'
' Side Effects:New control is EXACTLY where the orginal was.
'**************************************

'Load an new instance of myControl 
'the index is the count, thus making it one
'greater than the prior index as index is 0 based
'and count starts at 1
Load pbVI(pbVI.Count)
'Count is now 1 greater so to address the control 
'you just created reference count -1
With pbVI(pbVI.Count - 1)
'.Left = 100
'.Top = 600
'.Visible = True
End With
