    If the buttons are in an array, you can access them by using indexes.
    This element of the array: theArray[row][col] is a button and can be used to call button methods:
    theArray[row][col].aButtonMethod()
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    The array would need to be defined outside of a method if you want other methods to be able to access it.
