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


Hi Lance


You already have the TabControl object, so you don't need to reference it via the form – in fact, you don't even need to pass the Form as an argument:


Public Function FormatTabControl(ctlTabControl As TabControl)

With ctlTabControl

    .Style = 0

    .BackColor = RGB(236, 236, 236)

    .BackStyle = 1

    .UseTheme = False

    .BorderStyle = 1

    .BorderColor = RGB(0, 0, 0)

End With

End Function


Best wishes,

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



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?
