        btn(j).TextSize = 18

@juniorteacher if this is the same problem as you previously posted where you want unique and random values then I suggest that you add each image and text to a list and randomly remove from the list and assign to each button as previously suggested. Trust me, it will be far simpler. Have a go and if you encounter problems I'll help.
