    How to place controls?

    OK, you place everything with the designer. Now I just want to place a create a TextBox on the Form. How do I do this? I just do:
    Code:
    TextBox t = new TextBox();
    t.Location = new Point(10, 10);
    this.controls.Add(t);
    But it doesn't appear on the Form. What more do I need?

    t.Size = new Size(300, 20);

    "controls" has a capital C.
    Where exactly are you calling this? Works fine for me, you probably put it somewhere which isn't called.

    Lol. I typed TextBox. I wanted to type PictureBox. In which case I wasn't setting the BackColor so it didn't appear because it probably gave a default color which was the same with the Form. Stupid mistake.
