Using Variables inplace of Textbox Title

Im working on a piece of code where there are over 300 text box's, now most of these are not visible until a certain requirement is met, is there a way to setup so i can use a variable name instead of the textbox's name to set the visible.  Eg:

Private Sub DefendChanceLabel_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DefendChanceLabel.Click
        DefendChance.Visible = True
        Count = +1
    End Sub

/\ that is how i have todo it atm, for each one(plus i have to add checks to see if their visible etc - so another 5 lines of code per item)

This is how i was trying to get it to work

   Private Sub ArtifactRarityLabel_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ArtifactRarityLabel.Click
        LabelValue = "ArtifactRarity" <-- this is the variable im talking about
        Count = +1
    End Sub

    Private Sub BoxShow()
        LabelValue.Visible = True <- this of course isnt working - and thats what im trying to achieve, any ideas?
        Count = +1

    End Sub
