My first post, please be gentle.
I have 64 booleans - all must be displayed on a single screen as a series of checkboxes (no - I don't care about the 65th bool, yes - it must be a single no-scroll screen on the UI).
As a VBA-refugee, I would love to use a control array, but VS2008 doesn't like the idea.
The data I will have sitting on the server gives me the 4 "titles" for each of the groups of 16 bools, the text for each of the checkbox labels, and the current bool value for each checkbox. I can massage this data into any suitable form.
So my question: what's the best (?? cleanest, neatest, most-elegant, most-maintainable ??) way to get an array of strings and an array of booleans onto a form full of checkboxes, and to harvest the booleans after edit? This only takes half a dozen lines of code in VBA but I'm struggling to force it into VB.NET
Any general pointers?
