Control missing from Form's controls collection

Control missing from Form's controls collection

Post by John Malon » Fri, 24 May 2002 05:57:20


I have a simple unbound form that I added a comboBox to.  My reset
routine loops through all controls & resets all acTextbox &
acComboBox's to null after cmdSave_Click.  When the new ComboBox
failed to "reset" I inserted a debug.print & found that it
(and it's label) are not included in the Form's control collection.
How can this be?  Could a certain library reference be missing?

I've tried:  Deleting & re-adding, compact & repair, Repair Access
thru SetUp.exe, All service packs, different ADODB versions.  I
created a new form & add the identical controls & it works so i'm
thinking this is a bizarre bug of sorts.

umm...nevermind.  After compact/repair & pulling all objects into a
new .adp on a new (full XP) system ... it works.  I had tried this at
home w/ Win2k Adv Server using various versioned dll's w/o luck.
Sometimes it's like pins in a voodoo doll ...


1. controls collection - property's

Hi all,

I am writing a validation routine that loops through the controls
tests for valid input and on invalid changes the textboxes property's to
advise the user of invalid entries.

Is there any way to associate a textbox's label with the text box. That is,
on invalid highlight the label rather than the text box.

Also is there a way to reset all color property's on a form without looping
through the controls collection a second time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
