    I'm not sure whether XNA is going to help you anything.
    It's basically for game designing.

    Other than that I'm not really sure what you are doing with the buttons.
    Can you post a screenshot?
    Delete it. They just clutter threads anyway.

    the best example is Cisco packet tracer





    I wanna create a program like tht bt I know tht its too complex .. so I thought I will create buttons dynamically

    this is to display a network for example one button will represent the router or switch other buttons will act as nodes I will assign each node (button an IP address) so when I click a node(button) a popup will open and then It will ping tht node ...

    this is what I am trying...
    I am ok with the ping and all but I am struggling with the GUI

    vb Code:
    1. private void panel1_DoubleClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
    2.         {
    3.             //MouseEventArgs mv = new MouseEventArgs(System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Left,2,10,10,0);
    4.  
    5.             int x = Cursor.Position.X;
    6.             int y = Cursor.Position.Y;
    7.             label1.Text = x.ToString();
    8.             label2.Text = y.ToString();
    9.  
    10.             //Point screenPos = this.MousePosition;
    11.            
    12.  
    13.  
    14.             Button[] btnArr = new Button[2];
    15.             btnArr[0] = new Button();
    16.             btnArr[0].Name = "IAmButton";
    17.             //btnArr[0].Left = x;
    18.             //btnArr[0].Top = y;
    19.             btnArr[0].Location = new Point(x, y);
    20.             btnArr[0].Size = new Size(50, 20);
    21.             btnArr[0].Text = "check";
    22.             panel1.Controls.Add(btnArr[0]);

    23.         }
    If that is working already, you don't even have to name them.
    You can give the .Tag property the IP or something like that and add an event here using btnArr[0].Click += .... (when you type += you can hit 'tab' twice and it creates an event handler for you).
    Then in the event handler use the sender to get the tag of the clicked button.
    Delete it. They just clutter threads anyway.
