your loop works faster IF the number of controls < the number of "thing"
otherwise it will take longuer.
what's needed here is a control
create all your controls in a group "things".
Then it's easier to delete group n controls in a group than among other
repeat while there is a contorl 1 of grp "things"
delete control 1 of group "things"
or even better
delete group "things"
