expression. SetControlItemProperty( _Control_ , _PropertyName_ )

expression A variable that represents a FormRegion object.


Name Required/Optional Data type Description
Control Required Object A control in the form region to which the property specified by PropertyName will be bound.
PropertyName Required String The name of the property that will be bound to the control.


You can use this method to bind an explicit built-in property or a custom property to a control. You must reference the property by its string name, for example, Subject, and not by namespace, for example,

The PropertyName parameter is not case-sensitive. For example, SetControlItemProperty interprets an argument, CustomerId, to be the same as CustomerID and binds the specified control to the built-in ContactItem.CustomerID property.

Other than using the SetControlItemProperty method of a FormRegion object, you can also use code similar to the following to bind a property such as the Subject property to a control:

myPage.Controls("bar").ItemProperty = "subject"
