Private Sub getcontrolFromPosBtn_Click( _
ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
Handles getcontrolFromPosBtn.Click

    Dim i As Integer = 0
    Dim j As Integer = 0

    For i = 0 To Me.TableLayoutPanel1.ColumnCount
        For j = 0 To Me.TableLayoutPanel1.RowCount

            Dim c As Control = Me.TableLayoutPanel1.GetControlFromPosition(i, j)

            If c IsNot Nothing Then


            End If 

End Sub
