What is it that you are trying to ask? Do you mean that you want to CREATE a control of the type name stored in one of your string variables. Like if you have the value of your string varibale as "Panel" you want to create a panel type control (please varify if this IS what you are trying to do).
For doing such a thing there must be some way through reflection. Explore that. But simpler way would be to
write a logic (something like a switch case ...) which checks the string variable's value and creates a control of the relevent type.
even i wanted to ask the same question. the problem is there is already a control named panel1.. now there is a string literal which contains "panel1". Now i wanted to convert this string into that control.
