I am trying to group various controls (of the same type, eg. labels together, buttons together, etc. ) on a form using a tag or a name of some sort so I can identify all those that belong to tag 'A' and those in tag 'B'. In the end I will have on a form a number of labels grouped as tag 'A' and some labels as tag 'B' so I can change their visible properties on/off. Any clues? Thanks for the replies.
