Default Adding controls to a form based on data received

Hi all,

I'm working with a piece of VB.NET code which is intended to run as a Kiosk for a number of helpdesk staff.

What I want to do is make it so that all we need to do is change an XML file if we want staff to use other servers, or if a new contract becomes available.

I've worked out that I need two forms, one which displays the MSRDP OCX control, and the other which tells it which server to connect to, which file to launch once it's on there - etc.

I think I want to use a table control on the "WelcomeForm.vb" page, which has 4 columns, where columns 1 and 3 are images and columns 2 and 4 are labels. Both label and images link to the same function, but I don't know how to dynamically generate the table, as I won't know how many contracts we will need on there.

Can anyone make any suggestions?
