Default Creating Controls At Run-Time

What's the best approach for creating controls at run-time. I am trying to create a variable number of dropdowns. The number required, the labels and the data source are only known at run-time and created in some separate vb code. Does anyone know how to do this? Or know of any good examples? Even a few keywords to search the web for would help.

Thanks for any help.

Use the following code:
   Label lbl = new Label();
   lbl.Text = "test";


Note that if you want to use this labes out side the creating function you should define it as a global verible
