For this example, create two custom fields on the second page of a form. The first, a Boolean field, is named "RespondBy". The second field is named "DateToRespond".

Sub Item_CustomPropertyChange(ByVal myPropName) 
 
 Select Case myPropName 
 
 Case "RespondBy" 
 
 Set myPages = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages 
 
 Set myCtrl = myPages("P.2").Controls("DateToRespond") 
 
 If Item.UserProperties("RespondBy").Value Then 
 
 myCtrl.Enabled = True 
 
 myCtrl.Backcolor = 65535 'Yellow 
 
 Else 
 
 myCtrl.Enabled = False 
 
 myCtrl.Backcolor = 0 'Black 
 
 End If 
 
 Case Else 
 
 End Select 
 
End Sub
