How can I add a control to a Window Form at runtime?

To add a control at runtime, you do three steps:

1. Create the control
2. Set control properties
3. Add the control to the Forms Controls collection

Here are code snippets that create a textBox at runtime.

//step 1
TextBox tb = new TextBox();

tb.Location = new Point( 10, 10);
tb.Size = new Size(100, 20);
tb.Text = "I was created at runtime";
