Add a Control to a Form

Use this procedure to add a control from the Control Toolbox to your form. You can also use this procedure to insert a control in a Frame, TabStrip, or MultiPage on the form.

  1. In an open form on the Developer tab, in the Tools group, click Control Toolbox.

    Note If you do not see the Developer tab in the open form, see the topic Run in Developer Mode in Outlook.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Click a control in the Control Toolbox and then click in the form. The control appears in its default size. You can then drag the border of the control to change its size.
  • Drag a control from the Control Toolbox to the form. The control appears in its default size.

  • Double-click the control in the Control Toolbox, and then click in the form once for each control that you want to create. For example, to create four command buttons, double-click the CommandButton control in the Control Toolbox, and then click four times in the form.
