I have a problem with VB.Net:
Having a section of Text Boxes that I need to enable and disable by command buttons.
The names are: txtBx1, txtBx2… and so on. Attempting to loop through those with the assignments to en- or disable failed.
VB.Net does not recognize the names when adding the numeric name parts.

Dim i as integer
For i = 1 to 10
“txtBx”&i.enabled = False
Next i

Returns nothing but errors.

I tried multiple ways to combine loop integer with the string value and all failed.
Does someone have a clue how to get this to work?

I appreciate any advice.

VB.NET stores controls, like text boxes, to a control collection. See this DaniWeb's thread, how to loop through the control collection, recognize text boxes and finally, how to use control's properties.

Thank you ! (This explains why I could not squeeze anything out of my books, I was looking in the wrong sections!)
A big thanks again for your help!
