Run Time Object / Control Management

Can I write statements to add/delete the control objects like command buttons at runtime like we do in java C++ ? I am under the assumption that once we populate a form with controls we cannot drop some of them alone. An alternative may be to set the visibility to false. But I don't want to do that. Is there a solution? I am sick of the staticness of the forms in VB. I am a Java programmer learning VB.

VB6 has a Controls collection to which you can add and delete controls during run time using the Add and Remove methods. The Add method has the following syntax: Form1.Add (ProgID, name, container) The Remove method can only be used on controls that were added with the Add method. I has the following syntax:

Form1.Controls.Remove controlname
