Why No Control Arrays?
There is much discussion in the blogosphere regarding why Microsoft removed this feature and how to work around it. In fact, Microsoft themself has a webpage discussing a workaround. At the end of this page, there is a list of several sites which discuss the lack of control arrays in VB.NET , and its alternatives. Many ideas implemented in our code were from those pages, as commented in the code, and they deserve due credit.
