    What are the pages you talk about? Are they new independent windows or frames?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    They will not be independent, lets say that every page is an item, so there will be item 1, item 2, item 3...item n and all items are part of one product.
    So the user can decide how many items to add by clicking a button to add one more item or spinner maybe, and every time he ads an item he can fill all boxes that belong to that item
    So I believe the page is going to be a frame, and the user can add multiple frames one by one

    I will have to loop through every item(every page) and get data from each of them
    when the users clicks a button.

    I am not sure what kind of controls I can use to achieve this

    They will not be independent,
    How will they be displayed or organized so that they are connected and not independent?

    I believe the page is going to be a frame
    If they are frames, then they could be independent of each other.
    What would happen if one of the frames is minimized or closed? Do the other frames react?
    How would they be connected?
