Re: [MS_AccessPros] Using a variable to refer to to a control


If the name of the control works, then try this:

frmActiveForm(ctlTabControl.Name).Style = 0

Hi all

I've written a short public function to control the formatting of a tab control, so that I may have a consistent look for tab controls across forms.

Public Function FormatTabControl(frmActiveForm As Form, ctlTabControl As TabControl)
frmActiveForm.ctlTabControl.Style = 0
frmActiveForm.ctlTabControl.BackColor = RGB(236, 236, 236)
frmActiveForm.ctlTabControl.BackStyle = 1
frmActiveForm.ctlTabControl.UseTheme = False
frmActiveForm.ctlTabControl.BorderStyle = 1
frmActiveForm.ctlTabControl.BorderColor = RGB(0, 0, 0)
End Function

When calling the function on form open I get a 2465 error

Replacing ctlTabControl with the name of the control it works. But I want the name of the Tab Control in a variable so I can reuse the code for any Tab Controls I want to affect. 

What is the correct way of referring to the Tab Control?
