expression A variable that represents a TextBox object.


The Properties collection object is the collection of all the properties related to a control. You can refer to individual members of the collection by using the member object's index or a string expression that is the name of the member object.

The first member object in the collection has an index value of 0, and the total number of member objects in the collection is the value of the Properties collection's Count property minus 1.

Click the command button to print the list of properties in the Debug window.

Public Sub ListControlProps(ByRef frm As Form) 
 Dim ctl As Control 
 Dim prp As Property 
 On Error GoTo props_err 
 For Each ctl In frm.Controls 
 Debug.Print ctl.Properties("Name") 
 For Each prp In ctl.Properties
