  3. Hi,

    I would like to know if it is possible in to concatenante variable names.
    For example, if I have 200 pictureboxes named picturebox1,picturebox2… and I want to set all their visible property to false or true I don’t want to code them one after the other

    but I would like to do a loop like
    for i=1 to 200
    picture box & i.visible=false (of course this does not work, but what concatenation operation would work)
