//Create three Buttons
for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
Button btnTest = new Button();
Thickness btnThickness = new Thickness();
btnTest.Content = "Button" + i;
btnTest.Name = "Button" + i;
btnThickness.Left = 0;
btnThickness.Top = 0;
btnTest.Margin = btnThickness;
btnTest.Width = 150;
btnTest.Height = 25;

//add Control to stack panel
