    New to VB making hangman game

    Hi, for starters i am very new to VB and i am trying to self teach myself(not going to well). i have started a hang man program but i am lost on how to refrence lbls that i have made into a list of lables. the code listed below is a function that adds lables to a form based on a word size. If anyone can help me reference these labels so i can check them and then make them visible it would be very much appriciated. thanks in advance

    Dim ret As New List(Of Label)
    Dim curtop As Integer = 103
    Dim curleft As Integer = 122

    For Each C As Char In word
    Dim lbl As New Label
    lbl.Visible = False
    lbl.Text = C
    lbl.Top = curtop
    lbl.Left = curleft

    curleft += 40



    ret.Add(lbl)
    Next
    Return ret.ToArray

    End Function

    You reference the items collection to access an item in the list
    i.e
    Code:
    ret.items(index)
    You will have to add the labels to the form.controls collection before they will show on the form
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.

    Re: New to VB making hangman game

    here is the hangman game I developed for grades 6-9 for summer computer camp.

    the pdf doesn't allow right clicking to get images so change the index.pdf to index.htm. the htm version is not formatted so I don't use it in class. Hope it helps.
