    Help creating a new flowlayoutpanel for each item in my list

    Ok, I am not sure how to do this as I am trying to teach myself C# and create a program for work at the same time.

    I have a List of IP addresss:

    Code:
    List<IPAddress> addresses
    It could contain anywhere from 1 to 1500 IP addresses. I can access all the items on this list using this debug code to verify the list is set up right.

    Code:
        // Loop through the array and send the contents of the array to debug window. 
        for (int counter = 0; counter < addresses.Count; counter++)
        {
          System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(addresses[counter]);
        }
    I have a base FlowPanelLayout container in my Windows Form that is Scrollable up and Down:

    Code:
        // 
        // flowLayoutPanel1
        // 
        this.flowLayoutPanel1.AutoScroll = true;
        this.flowLayoutPanel1.FlowDirection = System.Windows.Forms.FlowDirection.TopDown;
        this.flowLayoutPanel1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(12, 67);
        this.flowLayoutPanel1.Name = "flowLayoutPanel1";
        this.flowLayoutPanel1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(1172, 597);
        this.flowLayoutPanel1.TabIndex = 1;
    I want to create a new FlowLayoutPanel foreach IPAddress in that list.

    From Research it looks like I can use the list as a Dictionary file to create a new variable name for each FlowPanel only I am not sure how.

    I did a test FlowPanel and came up with the layout below, I would like each Dynamicly created FlowPanel to be scrollable if needed Left to Right, to have a Label (The IP Address) and 6 buttons for that location each with the same text on them: Router, Switch, Steelhead, InPath, Server, and NCAP.

    I would also like to be able to do On Click and On Load Events later for each of these buttons being created. Do I have to do this now when they are being created or would I be able to do a separate void for that later?

    Code:
        // 
        // flowLayoutPanel2
        // 
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.label2);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.button1);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.button2);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.button3);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.button4);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.button5);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Controls.Add(this.button6);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.FlowDirection = System.Windows.Forms.FlowDirection.LeftToRight;			
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(3, 3);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Name = "flowLayoutPanel2";
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(1071, 57);
        this.flowLayoutPanel2.TabIndex = 0;
    	// 
    	// label2
    	// 
    	this.label2.Anchor = System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Left;
    	this.label2.AutoSize = true;
    	this.label2.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Microsoft Sans Serif", 12F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((byte)(0)));
    	this.label2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(3, 18);
    	this.label2.Name = "label2";
    	this.label2.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(129, 20);
    	this.label2.TabIndex = 0;
    	this.label2.Text = "199.169.250.126";
    	// 
    	// button1
    	// 
    	this.button1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(138, 3);
    	this.button1.Name = "button1";
    	this.button1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(150, 50);
    	this.button1.TabIndex = 1;
    	this.button1.Text = "Router";
    	this.button1.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
    	// 
    	// button2
    	// 
    	this.button2.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(294, 3);
    	this.button2.Name = "button2";
    	this.button2.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(150, 50);
    	this.button2.TabIndex = 2;
    	this.button2.Text = "Switch";
    	this.button2.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
    	// 
    	// button3
    	// 
    	this.button3.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(450, 3);
    	this.button3.Name = "button3";
    	this.button3.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(150, 50);
    	this.button3.TabIndex = 3;
    	this.button3.Text = "Steelhead";
    	this.button3.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
    	// 
    	// button4
    	// 
    	this.button4.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(606, 3);
    	this.button4.Name = "button4";
    	this.button4.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(150, 50);
    	this.button4.TabIndex = 4;
    	this.button4.Text = "InPath";
    	this.button4.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
    	// 
    	// button5
    	// 
    	this.button5.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(762, 3);
    	this.button5.Name = "button5";
    	this.button5.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(150, 50);
    	this.button5.TabIndex = 5;
    	this.button5.Text = "Server";
    	this.button5.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
    	// 
    	// button6
    	// 
    	this.button6.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(918, 3);
    	this.button6.Name = "button6";
    	this.button6.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(150, 50);
    	this.button6.TabIndex = 6;
    	this.button6.Text = "NCAP";
    	this.button6.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;

    Simplify, and create code to automate code.

    I honestly don't know how to write that code to automate code. I am too new to C# I think.
