Thanks for the reply. That has successfully populated the form with my 256 labels.
I found that trying to alter the backcolor of an indivdual label with

frmDisplay.Controls.Item(lbldisplay.Name("3,5")).B ackColor = Color.Green

produced the error "Index was outside the bounds of the array."

I can successfully alter any label properties by using, for instance ~

frmDisplay.Controls(153).BackColor = Color.Green

where the 153 is the index position of the label. If it's not too much trouble would you tell me what's wrong with the code that produces the error?
